I have laptop HP 6720s. This happens when I enter top in Terminal:
Cpu(s): 1.7%us, 1.0%sy, 0.0%ni, 97.0%id, 0.3%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 2053924k total, 1837352k used, 216572k free, 56876k buffers
Swap: 2929660k total, 68k used, 2929592k free, 1196700k cached
I have INTEL graphics card. Applications opens really slow but wireless is really fast. Operations inside applications are slow, too. I have Ubuntu for the first time, I totaly moved Windows 7 to history :) Hope Linux is not this slow usually.
