    Sluggish

    My new netbook is running a little sluggish, it seems to be having very high cpu usage too, its the Samsung N150, i know that atoms arent fast, but it should handle msn and internet just fine, but it struggles, time to try ubuntu, or reinstall windows 7?

    Em do you have microsoft security essentials? I know recently that was causing havoc with my system bytaking up 90% cpu most of the time >.<.

    I'd go with Ubuntu personally, the Netbook remix is excellent Free your Atom from Windows, it will be much happier and much snappier too

    Have played with some of the netbooks at work with Windows 7 (starter edition) and I was shocked at how badly they ran, very slow and sluggish. That was just doing basic things like browsing Files in Documents.

    Do you have all the "bloatware" still installed from when you bought it? That crippled my netbook at first .

    Very bloated, turning battery max cpu performance up to 80% from 50% has made a world of difference.
