Lenovo ideapad S10e
« on: March 25, 2014, 09:38:53 am »
Running Peppermint 4 on:

1 GB RAM
160 GB HDD
10" monitor
1.6 Ghz Atom CPU

It runs very smoothly, even thought this machine is nothing to brag about. I am very happy with the performance.

Dual booting Windows XP for when I need to run Corel Draw.

(my previous netbook was a EEEPC 407 G - running peppermint 3)

Netbooks are what brought me to Peppermint in the first place (replacement for the horrible Linpus Lite on an Aspire One), but now I run it on everything...

Not only is it an ideal netbook distro, but a great starting point for other PC's .. unlike most other distro's I don't end up having to uninstall a bunch of software that generally fits the developers idea of "good software" rather than mine.

It's use of web apps makes it fully functional "out of the box" without forcing any software choices on me .. the web apps are just shortcuts so take up no local storage, and are as easily removed through the Ice application as they are added.

My Idea of a great distro - Light, Fast, minimal pre-installed applications, and Ubuntu based for the PPA's/etc. .. Peppermint gives me all those things, and on top of that it's still fully functional out of the box (through it's use of web apps), and much "prettier" and customisable than most other "lightweight" distros.

Shane and Kendalls initial vision for Peppermint was a stroke of genius, and IMHO it's improved version upon version.
