Re: Are you happy with the "speed" of your fit pc 2?
I'd like to hear feedback from people about how happy they are with the "speed" of their fit PC2.
There is little doubt that a fit-pc2 is no speed demon, so do not expect miracles. I use mine as my main desktop at work and I have found it to be frustratingly slow at times, but the reaon for it is not so much lack of CPU horsepower, as lack of memory: my model only has 1GB (there was no 2GB model back then) and that is very constraining, so it often ends up thrashing. I replaced my 2.5" internal drive with an SSD instead to speed up swapping, and while it's no real substitute for true RAM, it does help relieve the pain.
For my use I expect that a 2GB machine would be fine (I have a netbook with the same CPU and 2GB of memory running the same OS and which I use similarly, other than the display size, and it doesn't swap much at all).
