Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

So how does the Booklet 3G perform? Well, like all netbooks it has fairly limited resources. The Atom Z530 CPU runs at 1.6GHz and has just 1GB of DDR2 memory, with an Intel GMA 500 graphics chip. During testing, we found the pre-installed Windows 7 Starter edition to be a little sluggish, especially when attempting to multi-task. It’s also worth noting that Windows 7 Starter lacks luxuries such as Windows Media Center and Microsoft’s fancy Aero interface.

In PCMark05, its CPU score of 1425 is a lower than the majority of N270- and N280-powered netbooks, but only by a little. The HDD score of 3008, however, was way behind the pack – closer inspection reveals this is due to the 120GB drive having a relatively slow speed of 4,200rpm compared to the netbook-norm of 5,400rpm.
