The biggest issue here isn't the absolute clock speed, but the fact that for this chip architecture, 1.5GHz is really on the lower edge of its dynamic range.
I run the NP305E5A-A05US with 8GB of RAM and I run several VM's under VMware workstation simultaneously, also Windows Server 2012 with several servers running inside a virtual cluster, all inside the laptop, with more than adequate performance. It does all this and more like a champ, plenty of cores to distribute the load and virtualization support in the BIOS. Much more than you could ask for at this price point IMHO.
do they even check the laptop before shipping it out? the cd drive is not even working. it's spinning but it doesn't read any dvd. i can't pop it out unless i insert the pin into the hole. but that doesn't help it reading any dvd. time to return it.
The install files from mydigitallife (article from ~2009 timeframe) recommended in SD threads gave CD/DVD driver problem. The above thread is newer and seems to solve the problem, or perhaps it was just the burning process
