Just bought an "off lease" Thinkpad T42; Ubuntu Jaunty installed; 1 gig ram.
It is so slow that when I finish typing a paragraph, it takes the system 10 or 15 seconds to finish displaying text on the screen (I only type about 50 wpm).
So, I removed 512 of ram, and it helped, but Only a Little.
I then did a clean install of Kubuntu 9: No Change!
This Thinkpad is an upgrade to a PII with 256 ram and RH 8.0 which smoked!
Why is my new Laptop SO PAINFULLY SLOOOOOOOOOW???
Any suggestions for the cause would be So Appreciated!
p.s. - I am hoping that I don't have to donate it to charity
