My buddy has an Atom processor in his new Toshiba 13 incher and he says it's really fast. He can mutitask like a mother. Plus he gets like 6-7 hours out of the battery which he loves.
Yeah they are, I have a eee 1000HE and it's always has spring in it's step.

Then no offense, seriously. But you don't know how to keep your computer cleaned.

I clean temp, cookies, flash cookies(no clearing your cookies does not clear your flash cookies), cache, db files, thumbs, etc.
My screen saver is a special tool that will actually fragment my HDD and optimize it so the operating system is closest in, including program files.
Once done it then goes to a windows screen saver of my choice.
I can interrupt it at any point just like a screen saver. It will run every 4 hours from the time of the last defrag and of course the next screen saver.

I use Spybot search and destroy to clean internal errors and starting programs. As well as the normal scan and immunization.

I then do a system scan with two Uniblue products RegistryBooster and SpeedUpMyPC.

As to the OP I would just use your own PC as you mentioned that you do have your own. Leave mom to her crap shot computer.

I remember back in the day when you kept things like a Rubik's cube near the computer while you waited for the computer to do something...
