Is there a way to improve my processors velocity?? like a boost?
This is what others thing about the laptop, worth a read I think:
Pros: Good specs for the money, even though its a lower
end Dual-Core processor, its still good compared to others. Excellent
Wifi card. Size and Weight are ideal for transporting, it fits in a
backpack and is very light. Very slick looks. The quick access buttons
at the top are pretty neat. Very easy to connect to external project or
TV, it literally takes a push of a button.
Cons: You have to be patient when using this laptop, the
boot-up and shutdown times are very slow, I don't know if thats Vista's
fault in design or if its just slow. 1 Gig of Ram is only minimum and
you can feel it too. The processor, as I said, was one of the lower end
Dual-Cores. Only 3 USB slots, I would prefer having on of the right side
instead of left so the mouse cord doesn't get in the way. The bundled
software is annoying. There is so much of it too, couldn't Acer have
put all their software in 1 folder, instead of clogging up the start
menu, same with the Vista software. The harddrive is 80 Gigs, but don't
expect that much storage. Vista alone takes a large chunk of that for a
hidden Backup partition. You really only get about 50-60 Gigabytes of
storage. That is my biggest annoyance.
Other Thoughts: I'm not a very patient person, so I'll
be looking to upgrade the Ram. Before that, I'll probably try to remove
all the unwanted software. Its a solid laptop for student use,
definitely not for gaming. If you want to play any somewhat recent
games, even at low settings, the graphics chip will not meet the minimum
requirements, and with Vista, even 1 gig Ram might not be enough. All
in all its a quality laptop.
I think the last paragraph covers your problem.
Hope this helps.
