As we know, netbooks have started hitting the market with a storm. However, in my mind, the two biggest factors to look at are performance and battery life, portability not withstanding.
With that said, by using Altiris SVS and by having the ability to deactivate or enable layers dynamically, a user now has the potential for the maximum possible performance on the system. With a simple right click, you can not only update software or remove a trial version of something, but you can also ensure maximum "clean" performance through this process by not having superfluous software that is not needed at that moment.
Any other netbook, laptop, or tablet users out there using SVS? My new tablet PC arrives on Friday and I can't wait to test out this theory and see how it performs!
