I doubt it. To make your netbook as fast as possible, you could try disabling all of the animation bells and whistles that are on by default in Windows 7. It'll make your desktop hella ugly, but it'll definitely be faster.

I know that it's possible to do this on former Windows PCs/laptops. If you happen to be on Google+, you can find much more information if you join the Chromebook Users community. Here's a link to an article about how to do it: https://www.diigo.com/user/mmansour/"chrome os"

From what I can see, you have nearly the full ChromeOS experience, except that the built-in track pad won't work. However, if you attach an external mouse to the laptop, you're good to go.

Hope this helps.
