I had linux mint 17 on this machine and chose to wipe it out this morning with a fresh pep 5 install...
mint was so slow it was running worse then xp did...
I think it has to do with the ram only having 1 gig, my asus eeepc has the 2 gig ram and the same processor....
mint first booted using 220 megs ram after tweaking i got it down to only 195 megs ram...
Pep 5 booted up first time using 126 megs ram after a few tweaks removing light locker and setting and removing bluetooth and btfrs tools it is booting at 115 megs
I would like to do 2 more tweaks on it yet removing any samba and cups programs for they will not be used on this machine all it will be used for is to surf the web...

I have this same netbook but with 2G RAM. Peppermint OS 5 really runs well on this. Much faster than XP. No crashes. Battery life may be somewhat less than on XP but it is not a problem.  The memory upgrade is a real pain as you have to disassemble almost the entire netbook.  I probably wouldn't have bothered to upgrade but the OEM memory card failed. So in went 2G.

You should try installing the TLP power manager .. see Stage 10 here:,760.msg6465.html#msg6465
