Hey there, I'm currently running Mint 14.1 Cinnamon on my laptop which has the hardware listed in the attached text file. My computer is running much slower than it did with Windows 7, something which I find very strange. My processor is supposedly running at 1.4 Ghz, which it should be running at at least 1.9 Ghz. I'm wondering if there's a driver issue afoot since I haven't installed any myself, but I'm also unsure on which drivers to install. Is there some command that will help me to do this? Or a URL to send me to which driver to install, that'd be great too.
Is it more graphically intensive than Windows 7? Because it runs just fine on my hardware. Also, my Mint installation takes forever to load, but I'm thinking that could be a separate issue. Also is there a way to switch versions of Mint (Cinnamon -> MATE) without doing a full install?
