I've been using a netbook for the past 2 months for everything, including gaming (limited to older titles). The netbook in question is running a 1 GHz AMD C-60 CPU with 4 GB of RAM, with a 64-bit version of Windows 7. Right now, I have 61 processes running, with almost 2 GB of RAM being used. Processor usage is stuck at 100%, and there is input lag in this very text box, but that's probably because I'm currently running a Flash app in Firefox, which bogs things down. All things considered though, the system is fairly response/snappy, and I'm not even using an SSD. I mean, yes, it's SLOW, but it's more than tolerable for regular tasks. The only everyday things that run slow, aside from games, are compressing/decompressing files, and anything Flash. But really, I expected it to be worse. I'm still considering getting another system with a better CPU, but for now (and ignoring the gaming aspect), I can totally see myself using this system for the next 6 months or more without complaints. Is that weird or what? Note that my previous system was a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2 GB RAM, Intel GMA X3100 graphics (slow, I know), running Vista 32-bit. The CPU was easily more powerful, allowing it to run Flash and such without much of a system slowdown, but this netbook is actually as good or better than it when it comes to games, given the AMD graphics (it runs L4D at above 20 FPS while my old system was sub-10 FPS). TL;DR: I'm using a netbook. It's not as slow as I thought it'd be. It's actually pretty fast. Am I weird for thinking this?
