Default How fast for Picasa & Youtube - 05-07-2009, 12:44 AM

I am considering getting the Mini 12 (thanks for the suggestion to check the Dell Outlets, that saves me a ton).
THis would be for my wife.

Currently she has a Dell x300 superlight 3 pound laptop. Runs intel Pentium M 1.2GHZ. She doesnt do much more than surf the web, a little photo editing in Picasa and Youtube. WIll it run those sufficiently ? Or will it be 50% slow? I am trying to get an idea for HOW MUCH slower I should expect it to be?

Also I will be getting the 1.6mhz and looking into some of the Ram hacks.
Thanks for this group!

(also any other places but the outlet and ebay for cheap versions)

I use my Mini 12 primarily just for web surfing, including YouTube. I also have Picasa on it as well. It handles all of these things beautifully. It chokes a bit on fullscreen, HD YouTube vids, but plays standard quality and size videos just fine, which is enough for me. Picasa also runs great, although I haven't really used it much other than just to test it out and make sure it works.

For me, the size and weight is what sold me on the Mini 12. I certainly didn't get it because of performance specs I couldn't be happier with it though.
