You want me to reload Windows7, just to provide you with benchmarks?
My earlier post makes it clear I habitually run XP on the netbook in question... and that I only loaded Windows 7 out of pure curiosity.
Why don't you go about convincing posters that 2Gb doesn't do anything more than 1Gb instead? As illogical as it sounds I'd say 1Gb is the sweet-spot for XP, however that would not be my opinion under Windows 7 due to the differing memory architecture, and randomisation in addressing memory (to provide enhanced security against hackers).
The reason I went back to XP was because some applications which act interactively with my employers mainframe won't work under Vista or Windows 7, otherwise I would have left it on.
One word of warning however. Battery life plunged under Windows 7, by about 25%. Also I forgot to mention the native WiFi card wouldn't work, and I had to fit a more recent and higher spec' Intel card.
Anyone with an Asus netbook can find out far more here
