We purchased a netbook for my wife who uses it mostly for web browsing and some light word processing. We added another gig of RAM for a total of 2GB. However, it is still slow in the sense that often it takes awhile for keyboard commands to register. Any tips for speeding up the netbook or any thoughts on why it is still slow (i.e., is is really just the speed of the Atom processor)?
This is a Samsung NF310-A01 that runs Windows 7 Basic. It has an Intel Atom N550 Dual-Core porcessor (1.5 GHz). We added a gig of ram.
My wife mostly just runs Chrome and Microsoft Word. We have Avast installed for our anti-virus and Dropbox is generally running the background.
