Windows 7: Windows 7 performance on IBM t43

Windows 7 performance on IBM t43

Helly everyone

I tried the early beta of windows 7 on my IBM t43 (see specs in profile), but thought it was a little slow.

Now I actually bought the win7 (for my desktop), but since I am going to be home for three months due to work, I only have my T43 and wants to install win7 on that.

Do anyone have some experience with the newer version and tips for improving performance for this older singlecore computer?

Thanks in advance.
