Looking for something else to do with the RPI now I have got hold of some spare SD Cards lol
There's a good thread on SD cards and some benchmarks on different cards here
. The cards that work best with Raspbian are generally not the fastest rated cards.
And try out the over clocking settings too. I haven't had any issues using these settings, but you do need a good power supply for the pi and a good self powered usb hub.
These two things will make a noticeable difference in web surfing.
The Pi will never be a great web surfing machine but there are applications where it's a much better choice than a hot rod quad core and it has gotten better since it was first released. For example, it's working great in my wife's office where her employees have mucked up at least a dozen PCs over the years. The Pi works fine for surfing where they need to but they're finding it's pretty sucky for their favorite sites that'll muck up a PC. They called a couple times to declare their successes but ended up disappointed when they saw how easy it was to swap out the SD card and everything was back to where it should be. I haven't heard from them in awhile now. I guess they've mostly quit trying.
