Windows 7 Starter Edition: Netbook Performance

For those of you who felt the urge to upgrade their Netbook from Windows XP to Windows 7 Starter Edition; then you had best think again. The reason why I say this is due to the fact that your small laptop device will suffer from performance issues from the start.

One person found this out the hard way, when Moley from ZDNet felt the need to upgrade his Samsung N150 Plus netbook. He knew right away that he was in for a rough ride because of how long it took to set it up. The reason for this was due to the amount of slow restarts during the install process.

It has been said that running Windows 7 Home Premium on a netbook makes the machine run faster than it would with the Starter edition, which I certainly find strange.

Having said that, the main issue is with the hardware that comes installed on most netbooks. We all know that the standard specs for a netbook is a small hard drive and just 1GB of RAM — not enough to even run Norton’s most of the time. I feel that the Windows 7 Starter Edition would work fine if these computer makers would allow netbooks to evolve much faster, as they have not changed much in the few years that they have been on the market.

Having said that, the smaller version of the laptop looks to be a dying breed with the range of new tablet devices that are about to hit the market.

Do you think that the netbook has had their day?
