TRIM on a Netbook

Has anyone tried installing TRIM on a netbook successfully? Im especially interested in how it runs on a Dell Latitude (1GB RAM ;  160GB disk ; 1.83GHz Atom processor).

Re: TRIM on a Netbook

Hi Barry,

 

TRIM should run fine in most situations, but it can be very CPU intensive depending on how it's configured.

For example, if you have a lot of customised toolbars, it will probably grind the netbook to a halt.

 

I can probably test it sometime this week on a similar specced netbook.

Re: TRIM on a Netbook

TRIM 7.02 recommended minimum requirements:

 

HP TRIM client (32-bit)

 

Operating system:

Windows XP Service Pack 3

Windows Vista SP1 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)

 

Processor Dual Core, 2.7 GHz or faster

 

Memory 2GB RAM

 

Disk space 50GB or greater

 

Display Graphics device capable of displaying

a resolution of 1024x768 or higher

 

Installation prerequisites - (included on the HP TRIM installation CD)

Windows installer 3.1

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package

 

Other:  DVD drive, keyboard and mouse or compatible pointing device

 

That doesn’t mean it won’t work for your configuration but as Grundy says, you probably will encounter less than desirable performance.

Re: TRIM on a Netbook

Yeah, he's not asking if it's supported Terry, just if anyone has tried it. :smileywink:

 

And I should also point out that those client requirements are slightly incorrect.... (CR was raised to fix it all)

 

e.g., Disk space 50GB or greater

Ha!

Yeah those "recommended" specs looked to me like a bit of an over-correction from the rather low "minimum" requirements that used to be in TRIMSPEC.:smileywink:

Re: TRIM on a Netbook

Yep, one user must have tried to use the actual minimum specs and so R&D said "That's it! SUPERCOMPUTER, minimum!"
