I’ve a little netbook that has Mint on it and a very small SSD. It does work but can’t take any more updates and is a bit slow to boot up and load up web pages. I think it must need more memory and perhaps RAM too. Obviously the SSD is too small ( in an old post Mark had said that it was working to its limit)- but I dunno if I could get a bigger, compatible SSD. Didn’t seem to find one when I looked on a computer update site. I might then have to go for an HD but hope that wouldn’t make it slower. How can I find my system specs to post them here so you nice guys would kindly give me advice on what would be the best for the inspiron mini?
It’s a useful little machine as I can use my scanner and Maxtor portable HD on it which I can’t do on my Chromebook ( which is my main laptop). Also I could buy an external CD/DVD drive and plug that into it too if I needed to create boot CDs in the future.
Oh I wanted to mention- I love Tux Race game I have on it (Mint)- it’s funny and cute but on the now dead Dell laptop which had Peppermint 6 there didn’t seem to be that game but a new Tux game but when I tried to get it from the package manager the laptop crashed and it would not download. I want to keep my Tux game!
