Hi, over the weekend I tried Porteus Live USB with the copy to RAM option. Very impressed as I did it on the "best" laptop I have which is only a several year old Windows 7 with celeron processor and 4 gig of ram model that was only $250 new when I bought it. So hardly state of the art but using Porteus Live copied to ram it seemed very fast and web browsing was great using Chrome. I did an Octane test and got 11100 which may not seem very high but the laptop using Windows 7 using only gets around 7500 so it was a fairly large improvement. Anyway are there other live linux usb's that would also be this fast or faster? Also, with the specs of my laptop am I right in thinking that since running live into RAM the laptop processor played no role so even if I had I7 with same RAM it would not make any difference in live mode right? But would having more than 4gig ram make a difference in terms of live performance? Thanks.
