Performance of Visio on a Netbook/Ultraportable?
« on: June 22, 2009, 08:06:51 AM »
Has anybody tried running Visio on one of these new, little netbooks? I'm curious as to how the performance is on an Atom processor.

I can imagine it is hard to see details, and screen real-estate is a bit slim...

Comments and experiences much appreciated!

Some of the slim books are able to produce some unexpected results, i've seen people use em with a beamer to show some amazing Edrawiings (3D-CAD, though slightly slimmed down)

They are a bit... well, slow for that. But I guess it all depends on how "slim" you  make your net book.

I used visio on a 11.1 sony (not a netbook but a 1.2ghz low voltage) and it was awful, screen size is a massive pain in the ass.
