Samsung N150

My Samsung N150 Plus netbook (Atom N550 1.5 GHz dual core, 1GB RAM, Windows 7 Starter)
wPrime benchmark. The Acer Timeline X is no more after drinking a cup of tea. I got a Samsung external DVD writer to go with it, and 4GB of RAM.



Benchmark run while on mains power.

Faster than my old Philips 11NB5800 laptop (72 seconds) and Athlon 64 3200 desktop (77 seconds). Faster than a Samsung N130 single core Atom netbook (130 seconds).

Although it's a dual core processor, it appears as 4 to Windows. Some older software (like MP3Gain) will only run on a single processor so never use more than 25% CPU.

The clock can only be synced with a time server when running as Administrator. That's what I was doing wrong. Once About Time is run as Administrator, it's OK.
