The performance between my OCZ Solid 3 on my main PC (since replaced with a Vertex 4) and in my netbook is disturbingly large. I didn't expect the Solid 3 to make the netbook not suck, but I did not expect the netbook to make the Solid 3 underperform.

204 point difference in AS SSD between the 2.

Any ideas?

Considering that netbooks have less powerful hardware, this seems about right. It may not just be the SATA controller, but the fact that the processor may not like the IO requests as much.

It doesn't seem right to me. The huge dropoff in 4k random read write performance definitely strikes me as odd.

While I didn't take a screenshot of it, when I had windows 7 professional 32 bit installed on there I seem to remember 4k speeds more in line with the ones reported on my real computer.
That's another reason that I'm curious about all of this. I would have left 7 Pro on there but several games I play on the netbook weren't immediately compatible with it and I didn't feel like troubleshooting at that juncture.
