I have tried lubuntu and elementary. Elementary feels extra sluggish and does feel like the processor is not keeping up.
But now I have installed Cloudready and having a great, actually fantastic, browsing experience. Cloudready’s display server and mouse responsiveness is wayyyyyy better than any open source stuff out there. Possibly, I’m not sure!
Now just waiting for the copper shims etc to be delivered before I try messing with processor and thermal settings in bios.
From what I read here, I gather that the ‘in windows’ software is only necessary to overclock the graphics. But making bios adjustments are enough to bump up the processor.
You mention that any linux distribution should be better than windows. That is what I expected too. But I am so disappointed. I don’t know why I don’t get a smooth experience on linux. Things like jerky scrolling, etc. I also have the teclast f7, even worse experience with that on linux. Dragging windows around is disturbing to the eyes with constant redrawing. Just not a polished experience. Tried several things from Ubuntu forums. Also asked about it on the forum but no reply!
BTW if anyone installs cloudready, the right click and drag function may not work out of the box for touchpads. Ask here if you need. Plenty of help on the cloudready forums too.December 12, 2018 at 7:10 am #149018Soyef ahmedParticipant

Hi Chris I have the lapbook se bought recently. I have a problem with windows so haven’t been using it for a while. Could you please help me with these questions.
1) which windows software gives most reliable readings of my CPU power limit, so I can check if bios meddling worked.
2) if I keep windows, does windows eventually auto update itself to super slow and glitchy? I had a big update that resulted in USB HDD not showing in “my computer” but showing in storage section of control panel, and also showing in devices section along with printers etc.
3) I didn’t understand what you meant by DPTF in the OP.
4) I’m not looking to game, but want a lagfree browsing experience. I have found that Linux is pretty slow in default bios settings but somehow windows is okayish, but you can tell from the scrolling that it is struggling. Is disabling the c state very important to get any benefit. I thought c states were good for extending standby time.
Thanks for reading.
