OK, have a play and come back tomorrow and we'll install any software you want .. please don't install any yourself yet as we need to do some updates and check all the hardware is working properly
No I won't.
What time you free tomorrow ?
I reckon sometime in the afternoon. Haven't had any shifts ( on agency work at the moment)- have to pop out to the local shops at some point but prob around one pm.
BTW, you can delete the b43offline directory from the desktop now if you wish.
To open your Home folder .. click
That automatically opens in your home folder
Just have a look around and I'll answer any questions tomorrow
Wouldn't hurt to have an idea of what software you're going to want too
Yes, know all that.
The boot time of the netbook is because it has an SSD .. that will slow too when it has a HDD .. that's just the way it is, SSD's are MUCH faster, but MUCH more expensive per gigabyte . which is why they tend to be smaller
Yeh the amount of RAM may play a small role, but by far the biggest reason the netbook boots so fast is the SSD
I'm not lying when I say Peppermint is quicker than Mint .. on the same hardware
Well so far it is a HUGE improvement on Windows XP!
We'll install Firefox too tomorrow if you want
Please yes- I love Firefox!
Thanks very much for this! Hope you get some sleep now...
