open jpgs and web based images and videos

2011-05-14, 2:21 AM

Hello, I just got an X100e and use it almost exclusively for work related tasks in creating online training manuals, Power Points, etc. Although the X100e is an efficient notebook for Excel, Word and emails, it doesn't do very well with graphics. My job requires me to work extensively with images both from email attachments and those that I grab from the web. The machine is veeeery slow in opening these files and more than very slow when viewing web based videos. The jerky "starting and stopping" casued by slow buffering makes them unwatchable and the slow load times of images slows my work pace to a crawl. Question...is it the 1.6Hz speed, or the single core proccessor that is the reason for this. I will need to upgrade to a better equiped lap top so should I look for faster speed or a dual core? Thanks much...5.13.11

doing multi task works alot better on multi core CPUs & a faster CPU speed would also help. a better GPU would help with the videos. I would also look to Win. 7 64 bit so you can use more than 3 GB of memory
