so i'm using ubuntu 10.04 on a samsung nc10 netbook with an intel atom processor.

This little box im working from came with the packaged little(16 gig) solid state drive. generally speaking, its quite fast for most of what i use it for. However, loading pdf files frequently takes an unreasonable amount of time, especially compared to other (older!) computers i've used. Is this simply a result of the lousy integrated graphics chip these boxes come with, or is there some kind of software fix?

What program are you using to view the PDFs?

i've just been using the standard document viewer, but i'd loooove to hear about some alternatives!
