We use them at the office for demos, emergency trips and spares so I have 3 in my office to use or send out on a demo or other task.
The usual pause is some antivirus or other app scanning the machine for what ever reason. I ejected the supplied antivirus for Google's PC Tools Spyware Doctor then configured it to not scan automatically. We can do that when we want to avoid slowdowns.
We also bumped the RAM to 2GB which helped.
Hi, I'm new to the CNET forums, and I just got a new netbook from Acer. I've had it for a few weeks and it's an Aspire One with an Atom n450 1.66ghz and 512kb cache, 1gb Memory and 160 gb hd.
I decided to make a forum to record the glitches that I've been having (since they are relatively minor).
first of all, don't expect this computer to win any races for speed. The second, and more serious, (or more annoying), is when I play music on the hard drive (it doesn't really seem to do it when I stream music as far as I can tell) it glitches and rrrrrrrrr for a second. Then it continues playing. I have another laptop,windows 95 that has 400 mhz processing power and it does the same thing. lol. That was just for comparison. But Is there any fix for audio glitches? It mostly just annoys me and hurts my ears a little when I'm on the bus riding to school.
So I guess what I'm asking is, Have I found a limitation of the processor?
