The N220 also benched very closely to the 1005HA, that is to say, it's a very slow machine compared to the larger machines based on CULV chips. The N220 took a mysterious dive in our NOD32 anti-virus test, taking almost 40% longer than the 1005HA. It also booted up much slower, probably due to the Windows 7 operating system.

Thermals & Acoustics

Internal temperature were recorded using SpeedFan while external temperatures were taken with an IR thermometer on the hottest point on both the topside and underside of the N220.

The N220 ran reasonably cool, with the left side of the system becoming lukewarm during load. Its acoustics were more impressive — the N220 is the quietest netbook/laptop we've ever tested. When idle and during Xvid playback, we could not tell if the fan was on and the system measured only 14~15 dBA@ 0.6m. The noise level increased in small steps when the CPU and then the GPU were placed on load. The acoustic profile remained soft and smooth even during the highest observed noise level.
