I have an Inspiron Mini 10 (1012) with a 250 Gig hard drive. The system performs poorly and I was wondering if I should upgrade the RAM from 1 to 2 Gig. I'm pretty sure I can with this model. The system thrashes quite a bit and I see a lot of hard drive activity. It's running Windows 7 and I've done just about everything I can to uninstall all unnecessary applications however it's still performing poorly. The system is used almost entirely for web browsing. The processor as Dell reports it is N450, 1.66, 512, PNV, 1012 if that helps.
I've been tempted to get rid of the system because of its performance but I figure I must be missing something if the Minis have such a strong following out here.
