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 Windows 7 (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 Windows 7 on that.

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

Thanks in advance.
