  • Normally when someone has Win XP and a fast network connection to the interweb, but finds things slow I suggest that their machine is horribly infected. However if the machine is walled off behind a proper firewall, then this is less likely to be the problem.

    How fast is data transfers between your two machines? Is the XP box slow at everything, or just the interweb?

    You are probably correct, a Mac would have been a better buy, you can still save the PC by putting something more sane on it, such as a Linux or BSD, though I'll admit getting notebooks with their proprietary hardware to work properly can be a pain for anyone other than the original vendor, even installing Windows on them can be hard...
