How many people running PL on their Netbooks?

Postby TNFrank » 16 Jan 2014, 16:36

Just wanted to see if anyone else was running Point Linux on their Netbooks? I recently picked up an Acer Aspire One ZG5 A110 Netbook(cute little thing) and was going to run Ubuntu/GNOME 13.10 on it. Ran ok but ate up 206-249MB of RAM just to run the desktop. It only has 1GB(I'm going to max it out to 1.5GB later today or tomorrow when the DDR2 I ordered gets here) so I need something lighter to run. Figured I'd give Point Linux a try and it's only used 160MB of RAM so I'm saving quite a bit by going MATE over GNOME 3. Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone else was running Point Linux on their Netbooks too.

I have a couple of them here:
1. eMachines eM350: Intel Atom N450, 2048Mb RAM, 230 HDD, Intel GMA 3150, Atheros wireless.
2. Lenovo B550: Intel Core 2 Duo, 2048Mb RAM, 250Gb HDD, Intel GMA 4500M, Broadcom wireless.

Everything runs smooth and by the numbers.

I installed Point Linux on my MSI Wind u100 with ralink rt2860 wlan module.
Everything is running out of the box and very smooth. I love it!
