Inspiron 1210 (Mini 12) is exceedingly slow browsing the web - any suggestions?

Our mini is very slow browsing the web.  For example, I may look up a page on Amazon on my Latitude D830 on our home network and the page will pop open right away. I try to open the page on the mini and it takes several seconds to load.

Our mini is running XP. I've run spyware and virus audits on it and they have come back clean. The wireless connection icon in the taskbar shows a strong connection with about 30 Mbps.

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you!

Depends on what's on the page -- if the web page has a lot of video or flash in it, the Mini will take much longer because the Intel Atom CPU isn't particularly good at video manipulations.

it is slow on any basic amazon product page - no video - just images and text.

Is this just with IE -- try Firefox -- any difference with that?

Maybe it's got too less RAM?
