LG X110 Atom N270 netbook
« on: November 05, 2014, 03:33:45 am »
Last night I had the pleasure to install PeppermintOS 5 in this LG X110 netbook of a friend of mine; her netbook was really slow after years with Windows XP which are not supported anymore, so we decided to go for an upgrade. Since Windows 7 could not be activated, I was really glad to give PeppermintOS 5 a try, hoping that I will manage to train my friend to use it from now on, instead of Windows.

The outcomes of inxi -F are the following:

All hardware was identified correctly without my intervention. Needless to say that Peppermint runs really smooth on the netbook, better than it did in my Acer Aspire One 751h...

Hi geoponer, that's outstanding news  8).  Please extend to your friend our warmest welcome to the Peppermint family.  Its really good to know that Peppermint Five works well on the her LG Netbook. I'm sure your friend will get used to Peppermint Five really quickly.  She'll soon realize why we all love it so much.  Many thanks for your introduction and the feedback ;)

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your warm message; it's always a pleasure working with Peppermint as it is one of the (if not the) most fully-featured, easy to use and lightweight Linux distributions that I have used so far - and I have tested several of them. Even though in my case (my Acer netbook) things were not as smooth in terms of performance as I would like them to be (and compared to the other netbooks that I have already installed Peppermint), I guess it has to do with the CPU (Intel Atom Z520 @ 1,33 GHz) and the terrible GPU (GMA500) - the rest of the netbooks perform really well with Peppermint.

I will share your welcome with her and I will let her know about this wonderful community; however, I am afraid that she's not the type of person who will go into forums asking for help - she just wants a netbook that is working properly and if anything goes wrong... I will be the tech guy! :)
