figured it is only fair what I show when I installed linux-lite 2.0 on a apple 128 gig ssd drive I shoe-horned into a Compaq CQ-57 . I pulled the Windows 7 hard drive and bagged it up for insurance in case I sell this thing. It runs pretty respectable on these specs.

I have the oversize battery in this Compaq, Cheapo. The Lion is for reminding one that a apple hard drive is the motor in this laptop.



Runs good on the SSD. Edit: I forgot to mention. My previous screenshot in this thread of Puppy Slack0 5.7 running inside of Windows 7.
That was the hard drive that was pulled and bagged.

Looks good, I like the computer set up, fanless as I read it w/ 9w AMD cpu and graphics. My last cpu was a 1.4 Geode at 14w (desktop). Worked well enough until I fired up google earth or watched a dvd, then it would hit 90%+ usage. How does yours handle that sorta thing ? Built this 3 years ago with a Sempron 145,40gig 5400rpm pata HDD and 4gigs of mem. A SSD is on my wanted list. (so is a new mobo and dual core amd.)

It handles running programs like if I added more ram. Everything picked up more speed and used less effort using a ssd.
The other one I bought is on this Dell I am posting from now.

The specs for this netbook I posted in this thread

This is what she looks like



This only has 2 gigs of ram and runs everything I throw at it fine and dandy. I am running a OCZ ssd mini sata since this is one of those swivel tablet touchscreen
netbooks. I pieced it together starting out paying 50 bucks for the Dell latitude XT2. 80 bucks for the 180gig ssd. 8 bucks for a power brick.
Touchscreen works out of the box with my finger, (it uses a wacom type pen I don't have yet), with this distro and XFCE, The kernel must be killer.

I am on it late because my Acer c710 chromebook took a dive. I think I need a new 16gig ssd for it as the new Kingston 60 gig SSD Now drive I bought seems not to have the
firmware needed for Acer to recognise the drive to boot the recovery usb for chromeos. Another can of worms I am untangling.

If you get a ssd. Pay attention to read write speeds listed. This one on here has mad speeds on it over the 500mbs range and it shows up on how it runs.

Really want a SSD, a 128gig would be nice. Most of the ones I like are right at $100 bucks w/ 400-500 read, write speeds. Using a 40gig 5400 ide (vintage 2005 w/ 20gigs still free) currently, I figure if it aint broke, I'm going to use it. Got A 250 gig WD My Passport I was using as well and was noticeably faster, just not sure it's built to do day in, day out work, so I keep a backup on it even though everything in "my documents" will fit on a 16 gig usb drive with room to spare.

Very nice Asian babe wallpaper

Fixed it. I needed to get naked, dance around a fire, snort some peyote, jumper out firmware write protect pin jumpers (kinda like what you see on a IDE slave,cable select, master, jumper plug)
Did a weird key combo thingy with the battery pulled, Then pull jumper, reinsert battery, then leave developer mode, then do a OS recovery.
Chromebooks are weird. They make Windows UEFI bios look simple. Easy to brick. Hard as hell to fix.

http://postmyimage.com/img2/840_Scre...0_at_11.13.png

I think I burst a blood vessel in my brain working on this frigging chromebook. Google/ChromeOS support did not help me in fixing this. It was all me.
Only took me a week or so to finally find the magic combo.

Feeling brave now. Maybe later I will try the Kington 60 gig ssd in here next. Now that I have some experience with the internals on these new fangled netbooks.
