The hardware is 6 years old and, at the time, Tech Report called it
"the best netbook we've ever tested". So it was quite good (for a
netbook) at the time.

Everything depends on the OP's intended use, of course. I just wanted
to disagree that you need better hardware for Linux than for Windows,
or at least for CentOS 6 than Windows 7.
