I’m currently using an ASUS netbook with similar specs (2gb RAM, Intel Atom N450 CPU), on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. This computer is running quite fast, despite the fact that I just disabled system swapping (I’ve still got 23% free RAM). I somehow doubt it would be possible to browse this page using 2gb of RAM on Windows 10, unless swapping was enabled, as Windows seems to uses too much RAM for core background services.
PS: Lower resolution doesn’t necessarily mean better performance. I’d like to see this Samsung install .net Framework updates. That process usually takes at least 15 minuets on my fairly-modern desktop. Update installation is probably the biggest slowdown Windows users are forced to face. What’s Microsoft’s response? Force the computers to install updates, even when the user (thinks) he/she has Windows Updates disabled. Nice. On top of which, most users will likely install some malware protection, which will slow the machine to a crawl.
