It seems to run sluggish in certain programs, and will run at 100% CPU capacity for very long periods of time in larger programs.
Linux = BAAAAD IDEA. What happens if you mess up your OS? theres no optical drive, therefore no way to restore it. Also, the netbook is VERY prone to overheating. I really don't suggest overclocking it.

I wonder the same thing. It's not like you can do any gaming on it.

If I mess up my OS, I keep a flashdrive with a backup on it, so that isn't a problem. Remember it's a minimalist netbook, so it only has a 4 GB SSD (at the moment)

I don't want to OC it much. I figure 1.8 to 1.9 would be enough.

OK, so how are you going to access the flashdrive? No OS means no USB drivers, and even if it had USB drivers, it would still need an OS to read the drive.

Disregard this about linux. I thought you were saying move from windows to linux, which would be a bad move.

the bios is capable of a usb boot and restore.
Also, it can boot from a usb optical drive.

Oh, I did not know that. In that case, they sound half decent. But any overclocking program should do, not just ntune. Ntune is actually a utility made by nvidia for overclocking nvidia GPU's. So anything of that nature will get the job done

OK apparently you didn't read the thread. I want to OC because it runs at 100% CPU usage for extended periods of time, which causes it to be incredibly sluggish with anything else.

I can't use ntune because ntune is mindows only. it has linux.

Have a Search on Google for it.

No, I couldn't find it. I'm sure there's an open source clone of it, though.
