D201GLY2A - 19-20% CPU usage with Road Runner + MP3 music playing + iGuidance + GatsoHunter + Hand Held Halo datalogging software all running at the same time.
Now running all those programs again on the D945GCLF I was expecting similar CPU usage, but to my surprise it's only 9-12%. Running Road Runner + MP3 music playing alone is just 7% usage. Hyper threading feature on the new Atom processor makes a big difference. Hyper theading is new to me, as I didn't realize it would give the OS a second virtual processor to help speed things up, cool feature.
I've seen CPU temperatures as high as 56C on the D201GLY2A, but with the D945GCLF the highest I've reach is 26C (ambient temperature outside is also 26C). This is really no surprise, and also the biggest reason I switched over, better temperature management.
I've experimented with TinyXP rev09 and it works fine with no additional driver packs, and worked smoothly on my PATA 2.5" hard drive. However when I use my SATA Solid State Harddrive it either crashes with a BSOD near the end of the install, or my hard drive partitions are all wiped out. I gave up on my SSD for the moment, but will try again later as I just upgraded the system BIOS.
