1. It's mostly because it's an Atom CPU.
Passmark CPU scores:http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php
Intel Atom N270 @ 1.60GHz 304
Intel Atom N455 @ 1.66GHz 311
What version of Windows is it running?
Windows 7 pro
And the thing is, the n270 with 1gb was a lot faster. I am going to try formatting and installing windows 7 ultimate which did wonders for 2 computers already, including the n270 with 1gb.
That's the only thing I can think of that will help.
I heard about drive cloning so that I can just put it back the way it is now?
Is there any free programs that will do that? I would like to put it back to factory settings if I decide to take it back after all.
It did not come with any cd's and I'm not sure about a recovery option.
