downland the newest and update the OS as well ('yum update' at the command line)

Unfortunately the operating system "linpus lite" on that machine is basically
garbage

linups figures that your "netbook" is an appliance , like a toaster
and you DO NOT update your toaster,tv remote, or your refrigerator

a light weight Desktop manager like xfce , using Linux mint 15 , might be a good choice to replace the operating system with

-- with the xfce desktop manager

I agree, I would choose a different distribution of Linux like Mint.
