I have noticed the same on web pages that have intensive graphics. I have not had any slowness otherwise. It will never compare with my Phenom quad core

Consider ditching XP and running ubuntu 10.04 LTS netbook remix. Your mini 9 will run much faster.

If the ssd is a FEM32GFDL from SuperTalent: This tool does some sort of of TRIM (download is on page 2).
