I just got a Toshiba NB550D netbook with a amd c-50 1ghz dual core and 1gb of ram.

Just for interests sake I went to my YouTube subcription page and loaded the same video on the netbook and my 27" iMac

I was surprised to see the netbook load the page slightly quicker. The iMac started playing the video quicker but the netbook was only 2 sec behind.

In the coming weeks I will be fitting 4gb of ram and at a later date I may fit a ssd. This thing will be a rocket then
