I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 (First time Linux desktop user) on my new netbook.
There is only a little additional software (Skype, Dropbox, AVI/MP3 Codecs), and the OS updates - and already the system hangs and gets real slow every now and again.
Maybe it just feels slow because I've moved from Google Chrome on a desktop to Firefox on a notebook; but there's definately a bottleneck - and according to the System Monitor it's not the CPU.
Before investing in a SSD, I'd like to know: what software would you recommend I use to determine this bottleneck?
Here's the specs: RAM: 2GB DDR2 800MHz. CPU: Intel Atom N270 @ 1.60GHz. GPU: Integrated. HDD: 150GB SATA Hitachi HTS54501.
I've already checked the threads Tools to find bottlenecks in hardware configuration & Will I see performance benefits from an SSD in my laptop? and they didn't quite answer my question.
