Let's say I pull up Open Office or Word 2003 on my Acer Aspire One. What test can I do to measure "full speed"?
I can do this test so let's spec it out and I'll get you an answer.
PS. It's chilling to read that 1GB RAM and 1.6+GHz CPU speeds are now considered low and slow.
Am thinking that netbook might be good for my mom - she only uses internet & Word and is looking for something very light.
qx: she does a good amount of writing in Word, and so needs it to work at full speed. i'm worried it might be too sluggish given low RAM and processor speeds in many of the models -- what have folks found?
any and all advice welcome,
