What can I say... I'm impressed. It's almost an old laptop by today's standards, a 32 bit single core Intel CPU with 2GB memory, an inbetween netbook and laptop at the time because it's small (11.6 inch screen), light, has no optical drive and has a trimmed CPU at 1.2 GHz, meant to be cheap but still powerful enough to get you through your computing duties.
And it works so nicely, much more efficient than the Windows 7 I had on it. It shuts down in 6 seconds, and there is not much hassle starting Libre Office or Inkscape... a real charm to work with.
I just migrated from Mint 13 with Cinnamon, and now onto a fresh 15 install also on Cinnamon, this time around with encryption. Soon I'll upgrade my workstation from 14 to 15 based on this positive experience.
One thing I have to keep on doing on install is to change the Samba configuration file in order to be able to access my network drive (Seagate GoFlex Home 1TB) with excellent speed, and to access the printer that's hooked up to the GoFlex - which acts as a server since the printer is USB only.
