Hardware, Embedded Systems Few hardware vendors have not yet launched their own mini laptop (or, "netbook"). Most brands these days produce their own version of the same hardware, with Intel's i386-compatible Atom cpu's and Windows XP installed on a spinning hard drive or sometimes still a solid state disk. Some Linux models are still sold by some vendors, among whom Asus, which more or less started selling in this OLPC-inspired genre of laptops.

An easy benchmark would be to download a vanilla kernel and then time the compiling.

Also, Linux from Scratch uses the time for compiling binutils to help users estimate compliling times for all the stuff the have to compile later. That might be one to try too.

Phoronix has tons, but they might be a bit complicated to do on that laptop.

Have a nice day!
