Apple :: How Long Will It Take For To Run New I Series Processors

Feb 11, 2010

Well we didnt see any updated from Apple other than iPad... So how long do you think it will take Apple to put an i series processor in their macbook pro's lineup ? I mean form factor is the same as HP envy 15 and those run i5 and i7 (second gen envy 15 have no heat issues at all) So when will apple finally update its outdated products?

Apple :: Swapping Processors From HP To An MBP

May 14, 2010

I have a spare Intel Core i7-720QM from an HP DV notebook laying around. I've done processor swapping in different systems before so im no noob at it, such as replacing a quad core Q9000 for a quad core extreme QX9300.

I was thinking about getting the new 15 inch MBP with the Core i7-620M and swapping the processors, putting in my Core i7-720QM.

Is it possible? Or are they soldered to the board? Or is it through sockets?

Apple :: 10.5.7 Updatehow Long

Jul 13, 2009

Ive update a Macbook from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7, but after the initial download (around 250Mb I think) and reboot, ive been looking at a progress bar of 3% for what seems like ages....maybe an hour at this stage.

How long should this normally take, im not a native OSX user? Im tempted to do a hard-reboot but am I being too impatient? Also, am I looking at a borked machine if I do a hard reboot, or does Mac OS have the same kind of safety features as Windows (ie Restore point)?

Lenovo Y40 P/Y/Z Series :: Right-click Takes Long Time To Pop Up?

Dec 7, 2014

Just to clarify the subject, the right click that takes a long time to show up is when it's done on the desktop or when you right-click in a windows explorer folder, blank area witnothing selected (like to create a new folder or something). When you right-click, it shows the blue circular thing to sow it's tinking about it, it's loading and takes about 8 seconds to pop up after the click. Right-clicking on selected files, folders or in any other software, pops up instantly without issue.
It's a brand new Y40 laptop running windows 8.1. i7-4520U (2.00Ghz 1600MHz 4MB), AMD Radeon R9 M275 2GB, 8GB Ram, 1TB 5400 RPM, 
I've updated the Radeon drivers with no improvement. It works perfectly in safe mode,

Apple :: MBP - Prolong My Batteries Lifespan As Long As Possible

Aug 8, 2009

Now that I've got a new MBP with an awesome 7-hour battery, I want to prolong my batteries lifespan as long as possible (especially since it isn't user replaceable!).

According to this thread: Notebook Battery Guide

I should never fully discharge my battery to 0%. Apple's battery calibration tips [url], on the other hand, tell me to discharge to the cutoff point, then leave computer in sleep for 5 or more hours. Won't this discharge the battery to 0%?

I'd like to think that Apple wouldn't tell me to do something that would harm its own product, but I just wanted to double check for sure.

Also, what level are you guys usually draining your batteries to before charging them? The battery thread says 10-20%.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P Slowed Down - Taking Long With Simple Tasks

Jun 15, 2014

Alright, so early January this year I got myself a Y510P. I bought this cause I already knew I'd be transitioning to different locations and that a desktop wasn't going to be practical. I intended to work with on school, watch movies, game, etc. All of these went perfectly fine
At the end of January I studied abroad till the end of April. During this time I rarely had time to do a lot with my laptop as I was quite occupied with school and social life around it. The few times I did use it for things like watching a movie or play a small game were fine. Anyway, when I came back home in the Netherlands, I noticed that it had slowed down considerably. It tends to take long with simple tasks and unfortunately gaming has become something I can't do anymore, hell, in online games I get called 'wooden pc guy'. Obviously I'm not very happy with my laptop feeling like a machine from '98. 
I tried cleaning out my disk, defragging, registry cleaning, scanning for viruses, etc. Nothing works, I want to reinstall my OS to see if it might work, but when I ordered my laptop, I never received an install disk for Windows 8 with it....

Apple :: Long Load Time For Win7 - When Booting

Sep 28, 2009

If anyone experiencing long load times when booting up Windows 7? It takes considerably longer for me to boot Win7 than SL...

When Win7 boots, whether it be a cold boot or reboot, ill find myself hanging at a blank/black screen with nothing other than a blinking underscore in the top left corner for what seems like a minute, then it'll go to the normal "Starting Windows..." screen from there. Is a format/reinstall in order?

I close my lid and the apple logo takes about 4 seconds until is shuts off and another 30 seconds until the light starts to fade in and out. I've shut the lid of another macbook at an apple shop and they go to sleep instantly.

Apple :: How Long-term Durable Is A MBP Relative To Other Business Class Laptops

Jan 9, 2010

How long-term durable is a MBP relative to other business class laptops like Thinkpads/Latitudes/Elitebooks?

I'm concerned that Apple's extremely short definition of (planned) obsolescence might be reflected in their product design and manufacturing... I mean, it's not uncommon to expect to get 5 years of use out of a Thinkpad, but I think I'd get weird stares if I told people I expected to use an MBP for 5 years

Dell :: Processors In Studio 17

Oct 31, 2009

Dell, and someone there told me that you couldn't just swap out processors in the Studio 17.

Said the processors are soldered to the motherboards. Is this true?

Example of what I'm wanting to do::
If I were to order one with the Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 processor...

could I later switch it out for the the T9600? If you can just switch it out, is it as fairly easy to do

HP/Compaq :: Dv6se With AMD Processors Out At HP

May 26, 2010

I just noticed that the new dv6 with the updated AMD processors are available at HP and they are very good value. I just configured one with,

AMD Phenom II N830 Triple Core processor at 2.1GHz
320GB 7200RPM
1GB ATI 5650 (switchable)

for $875. The select edition also has the touchscreen option available and comes standard with AMD Turion II dual core P520 at 2.3GHz and ATI 5470 for $650.

The dm3z has also been refreshed with up to AMD Turion II Neo dual core K625 at 1.5GHz and ATI 5430. I wish that these had been out when they did the 25% BCB, could have gotten the dv6z for $700 and the dm3z with Turion II Neo dual-core K625/ATI 5430 plus an external optical drive for $600.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV3T Processors

May 20, 2009

I'm pretty much ready to order the HP DV3T notebook, but one thing that confuses me is the processor. I want a very fast processor, so initially i was going to get the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T9550 (2.66 GHz). However, i did some research and i found that the P series processors are more efficient than the older T series, thus using less power and have a faster FSB. The next fastest P series processor you can get with the DV3T is the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P8700 (2.53GHz). I went on Intel's website, and if I read correctly, the P8700 and the T9550 are both 45nm, and have the same FSB (1066Mhz). However, the P8700 has 3mb L2 cache, and the T9550 has 6mb L2 cache.

Source : [url]

Basically what im asking is what processor is the better one? Money isn't a factor, so I just want the better processor. All these numbers are confusing me, and i dont know what exactly i should be getting here.

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16t Processors. Which Ones Run Your Machine Hot

Jun 7, 2009

I am considering the P8700 2.53, T9550 2.66, and the T9800 2.93. I know the T series requires more power to run thus causing more heat to be generated. but for anyone who has any of these processors, does the computer actually get hot to the point where it affects the computer or your hands?

Dell :: New Intel Processors For M4400

Jan 8, 2009

I've been following notebookreview's threads for quite some time since I'm planning on replacing my good-old veteran Inspiron 8600 with a Precision M4400, which currently suits my needs best

I was just about to order the laptop from Ireland (which is the cheapest and most secure way of getting the M4400 to where I live at the moment - Bulgaria) but a couple of days ago I saw a piece of news about five new processors - T8700, T9550, T9800, Q9000 and P9600 Processors for the Centrino 2 platform. Now I'm waiting for the P9600 which is a bit faster (2.66 GHz)but most important for me is that it has a lower TDP rating than what I initially planned to order - T9400. I travel a lot so battery life and power drain are important for me.

Does anyone have information if the M4400 will have a P9600 option in the nearest future so that I wait a bit more? I remember that some time ago the P9500 was available within the M4400 configurator but then Dell misteriously discontinued offering it

It is also romoured that Intel will reveal the new i7 mobile processor versions soon which makes me think it all over again and maybe wait a bit more. My only doubts are that the mobile i7s would have a higher TDP which will eat up the battery in no time

Acer :: What Processors Can Be Installed To An 8930g

May 3, 2010

I have one of the higher end specs of the 8930g but it is struggling with simple stuff. Even FireFox can get CPU to 100%!

I recently bought a hauppauge hd pvr and when I tried to edit video it became very slow!

It has quad core 2ghz processor 6m cache 1066fsb. When I paid 1200 for it I would have thought it would he more than good enough for stuff like this. Would upgrading the processor fix this problem?

If so, is there a list of which processors would be compatible? I have 4gb RAM and 1tb hard drive space...

Acer :: What Processors I Can Upgrade To On My 9920G

May 16, 2009

what processors I can upgrade to on my 9920G?

From what I've read, I have need to be careful not to choose one that will overheat the system. So how do I find out what the limitations of the board are?

I had an earlier post about my laptop croaking (dead motherboard). Which Acer wouldn't fix because it said the mobo wasn't available anymore. It IS, in fact, still available from the factory, so I've found one through an exchange program and will be replacing it myself. Which makes me think that Acer is a bunch of monkeys - but that's another saga altogether.

Since the processor on this thing is a little underpowered, I thought I might upgrade that while I'm at it.

Dell :: Aftermarket Processors In Latitude E6400

Feb 16, 2009

Has anyone installed a processor in their E6400 that is more powerful than the pre-installed top factory option (the 2.93GHz T9800 Dual)? I was thinking about putting one of the following into mine:

X9100 (3.06GHz Dual)
Q9000 (2.0GHz Quad)
Q9100 (2.26GHz Quad)
QX9300 (2.53GHz Quad)

Anyone know if any of these will work, and if you have done it, how is the heat management, and are their any other issues?
