Medion Akoya E1210 unter OpenSuse mit 2GB deutlich schneller

Beim fleissigen Arbeiten mit meinem Medion Akoya E120 unter OpenSuse 12.1 fiel mir auf, dass je mehr Tabs ich im Browser öffnete um so langsamer das Subnotebook wurde und umso mehr die Festplatte ratterte.

Auch beim Verwenden von gleichzeitig mehreren Programmen wurde die Festplatte übermässig gefordert. Ich weiss, dass KDE viel Speicher benötigt und dass OpenSuse 12.1 noch nicht optimal auf Subnotebooks angepasst ist. Manchmal habe ich bei Benutzung der Funktion 'Speichern unter' deshalb auffällig lange auf das Erscheinen des Dialogs gewartet.

Um Abhilfe zu schaffen, fasste ich die Aufrüstung von 1 GB auf 2 GB ins Auge. Das Medion Akoya E1210 kann mit RAM bis zu 2 GB umgehen, wurde aber mit 1 GB verkauft. Die Speicherbank ist mit 1 GB voll besetzt, weshalb nur ein Austausch möglich ist.

Für CHF 28.-- (ca. 23.-- Euro) habe ich ein 2 GB-Modul von Kingston gekauft (genauer Typ siehe weiter unten). Der Austausch ist keine grosse Sache und in ca. 10 Minuten erledigt.
  • Stecker für Stromzufuhr entfernen
  • Akku entfernen
  • statische Aufladung des Körpers ableiten (Finger an blankes Metall von Wasserhahn oder Heizkörper halten)
  • Alle Schrauben (Kreuzschlitz) an der Rückseite entfernen
  • Abdeckung vorsichtig entfernen (über seitliche Stecker herausziehen) 
  • dann altes Speichermodul entfernen (seitliches Wegklappen der Metallspangen), Modul schräg nach oben herausziehen
  • neues Modul mit der Kerbe auf der richtigen Seite einstecken
Die Aufrüstung tut dem Subnotebook gut. Die Festplatte ratter deutlich weniger und das Arbeiten geht flüssiger.

Für noch mehr Arbeitsgeschwindigkeit habe ich ausserdem in der Desktop-Konfiguration die Animationen deaktiviert. Auch das macht sich bemerkbar und hatte einen weiteren angenehmen Nebeneffekt: Nach dem nächsten kompletten Neustart war die Transparenz der Kontrollleiste endlich weg.

Die Transparenz der Kontrollleiste hat mich schon lange gestört, aber ich konnte nicht herausfinden, wie man diese entfernt. Auf kleinen Displays ist es praktisch, die Kontrolleiste auszublenden und nur im Bedarfsfall mit der Maus einzublenden. Damit erhält man etwas mehr Bildinhalt.

Beim Einblenden überdeckt die Symbolleiste den unteren Fensterinhalt. Durch die Transparenz scheint der Fensterinhalt durch und stört die Sicht auf die Kontrollleiste, wodurch die Symbole nicht mehr gut erkennbar sind.

Jetzt ist durch das Deaktivieren der Animationen eben auch diese Transparenz weg. Das sieht nicht ganz so schick aus, ist aber praktisch.

Das Aufrüsten auf 2GB RAM hat sich gelohnt, ich kann es weiterempfehlen, vor allem dann, wenn mit dem Subnotebook intensiv gearbeitet wird.

themselves or with minimal treatment, but their location and the amount of pain involved makes them difficult to ignore.

Dogs are creatures of habit and when their routine

there are accessories available such as lockets and necklaces and
