As you can see from our PCMark05 bench tests a speed demon the Mini 12 is not, the HDD test result being particularly poor. The 1.6GHz Atom Z530 doesn't deliver quite as much performance as the 1.6GHz Atom N270, but it's not so very far behind.
Longer bars are better
Its not all bad news though. Running our usual Gimp test by applying the Gaussian blur filter to a 2048 x 1366 pixel JPEG image took a class-leading average of 4.5 seconds compared to 5.1 seconds on the Windows XP Mini 9.
Get a girlfriend mate. Seriously. Get a girlfriend and buy this sexy netbook, place it in the corner of the bed and imagine a 3p situation. Nerd bliss!
i just had an orgasm
Why SSD on the Mini9 and HDD on the Mini12
If I were to guess I'd say there wasn't enough space in the Mini9 to put a 1.8" device inside.
