|Of course it's slow, it's a very low end/entry level laptop. I think your expectations are too high.|
From a recent review:
"As with the other laptops in this group, the X58C struggles when multi-tasking, and 3D power is also limited...."
"The SiS graphics card offers 3D power that falls a long way short of what we've come to expect from modern laptops. You will be able to carry out basic home and office tasks without trouble. Just don't expect to play games in your spare time."
"Everyday performance lags behind that of more modern laptops, due to the use of the resource-intensive Windows Vista operating system, coupled with a low-powered 1.2GHz Intel Celeron chip. That said, as long as your needs are simple it's a capable machine, only suffering from serious lag when several applications are running simultaneously."
