Same story here I almost got it for free and it was so slow and rubbish it was used only as a 3rd of fourth backup, I was about to trash the thing but before I did a little search to find what was available as of upgrades and saw the crucial RAM and SSD upgrade was quite cheap so I jumped in and purchased both.

Crucial 2gb RAM and 240gb SSD + Debian 7 (wheezy) and this thing isn't useless anymore I do a lot of on the go compiling with it and beside poor battery life (Atom 1.66 is supposedly low power but it's working so much to keep up with amd64 modern instructions) it is way more practical than my others 17" laptops especially in the train daily commute, Crucial saved a 1018 life !


If it's slow it must be Windows!
