One test worth pointing out was the battery test. For the battery test, I ran Battery Eater Pro on the Neutrino, with the screen at full brightness and WiFi on. The total battery life was 1 hour, 44 minutes, which is certainly not too impressive. It's important to bear in mind that the standard Battery Eater test does put the computer at a bit of a load, however the Neutrino's performance was only a little more than half that of my MSI Wind when it was new.
Because almost all netbooks run identical hardware configurations, non-battery performance comparisons are generally a wash. OCZ's Neutrino did have an obvious advantage during testing due to its solid-state hard-drive and its extra 1GB of RAM as compared to the Wind. All test results were exactly as expected: in HDD intensive tests, the Neutrino was much faster due to the SSD, in general system tests and CPU tests, the Neutrino was slightly faster due to the extra 1GB of RAM. In memory-specific benchmarks, however, the Wind performed marginally better than the Neutrino.
Rather than provide all tests results here and comment on them individually, due to their as-predicted results, I am including them as an appendix to the review for those who are interested. After all, a netbook is not meant to be a performance machine, but rather a lightweight mobile computing solution.
