My wife has an Asus Eee Pc netbook and right now its really a pain to do anything on it because its just so slow. I've heard that Windows 8 should improve performance some, but I wanted to know if anyone has done anything similar and if the performance gain was noticeable.

I am aware that it will not have a high enough resolution to support Modern apps.

What do you have installed on it now? – David Oct 26 '12 at 22:06
We need more information to answer this. What OS is on the netbook now? How much memory? – Roger Oct 26 '12 at 22:23
Sorry, looks like I accidentally deleted that. Right now its Win7 STarter, 1 GB of RAM. – corwin01 Oct 26 '12 at 22:29

This means you will be unable to install ANY application sold on the Microsoft Store that is a Modern UI application. In addition if your system is already slow, it won't become faster, because you install Windows 8.
