Irene,
Welcome to SevenForums.

Increase the ram to the max allowable for that netbook.

Install a SSD. This will make a big difference. If you would like to pursue this option, let me know so that I can give you a procedure for putting everything that is presently on your hdd to an ssd.

What will also be a big help is for you to fluff out your system specs.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

thanks,

By all means bump the RAM up to the 2G max for your netbook but don't expect really noticeable performance gain from that.

Replacing the mechanical HDD with an SSD will show a definite performance gain, especially in boot time.

Irene,
Incidentally, I have an ASUS netbook.

I had a noticeable improvement when upping the ram to 2 GB
I had a still bigger improvement when changing from hdd to sdd.

I've been there, done that. One thing about a ram increase. That is a small cash outlay.

Those two improvements have made my netbook worthwhile.

Oh yes, presently have 64 GB SSD in the netbook and have a 128 GB SSD in my laptop.

If you haven't already uninstall the bloatware that comes preinstalled on it. As a trade off there is a Performance Settings section under the Advanced tab in System Properties. Turning off some or even all of the fancy animations and Aero effects will speed things up.

We have 7 netbooks in our family (both ASUS and Acer) and all but one have had the RAM maxed out. Can't say we saw much of a performance improvement due to upgrading the RAM. Several have been upgraded to SSD with very noticeable improvement.

The RAM upgrade is less expensive and easier to do but just don't expect dramatic results from it.

New Netbook
Hello guys. I've bought a new netbook. My Question is do I need to keep the Adapter Plugged in ? or can I remove it when the battery if fully charged? Because I read somewhere that's better for the battery life to keep the adapter on all the time. Sorry if this is not the right section!

Hopefully this is the right forum to request hardware suggestions. I am looking at getting a second machine that is more mobile than my ASUS N61JQ-A1. These are the two models I am considering. Are there any others in this price range I might consider?? They are both under $600 Asus Eee...
