Dell :: Celeron Or Dual Core For Basic Computing

Oct 8, 2008

I'm shopping for a new laptop to replace a damaged Dell Inspiron 1300. All I would be using the computer for is web surfing, sending and receiving emails and some Quicken. I'm not a gamer nor am I into digital photography. One thing I do know is since the new computer's OS will be some form of Vista I need to make sure that it has at least 2GB of memory, that part I'm certain of based upon so many comments I've read about memory capacity and Vista.

I'm looking at a Dell Inspiron 1525 to replace my 2 year old Inspiron 1300. Dell offers a Celeron processor as the entry level processor on the 1525 and from there you can choose a dual core processor and then several core 2 duo processors. For basic computing needs on a computer having Vista with 2GB of memory would a Celeron processor be enough of a processor for me or should I spend an extra $50.00 USD for the entry level Dual Core processor offered by Dell?

Acer :: Dual Core SU2300 Benchmarks Vs Single Core SU3500 - 1410

Nov 3, 2009

I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.

HP/Compaq :: Dual 3870s, Dual Screened, Quad Core 17in Voodoo

Jan 2, 2009

It sure does look like that Clevo 18in revealed sometime ago.

Quote:

Under the hood of the 17.1-inch Firefly we found a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU, 4GB of RAM, a pair of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs running in CrossFire mode, and a 7,200 rpm 250GB hard drive. The Firefly spec sheet said the machine is capable of overclocking, but we didnít touch the BIOS.

And a MultiTouch trackpad, Backlit keyboard (with m15x-esque customizable colours), Creative X-Fi audio and a Dual Hinge like the HDX 20.

Dell :: M90 Dual Core Processor

Jul 13, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on my M90. This is the first dual core I've owned.

After installing all necessary drivers and Microsoft updates, I am very disappointed with the overall performance.

Is there something unique with dual core processors that I am unaware of? Let me give one example. No matter how many times I run disk defragmenter, my hard drive is still around 40% fragmented.

Dell :: RAID V.s Dual And Quad Core

Feb 14, 2008

I've seen a number of rescent posts where folks are still setting up RAID platforms even though dual core and now quad core processors are becoming mainstream.Is it the additional chipset that you demand or what is it that requires the additional hp you seek? there is no game out there I cannot play without it and short of CAD I see little use other than proffesional requirements (NIMBUS 2.1 or Zach, perhaps).

Dell :: Upgrading M4400 From Dual To Quad Core

Mar 27, 2009

Can this be done without a new motherboard or special heatsink? I originally wanted to do with the an HP 8530w but as the dual-core mobo is not compatible with the quad mobo it's no longer an option for me. Is the m4400 constructed in a similar fashion? or did Dell opt for a universal mobo?

Dell :: Inspiron 15 : Pentium Dual Core Or Core2Duo ?

Dec 7, 2009

Since she only uses it for office, mail, web browsing and some music with Media player or iTunes, I know the integrated Intel GMA4300 will suffice.

However, I'm not sure about the processor. There are three options, a celeron dual core (which is really low-end, so out of the question), a 2.1 Ghz pentium dual-core (T4300) with 1Mb of cache and a 2.2 ghz core2duo (T6600) with 2Mb of Cache. They all have 4Gb of RAM.

Both the pentium dual core and the core2duo come with Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit) so I expect even the dual core can't be that ancient as far as architecture is concerned .....

I have the Asus PVR and have a bunch of movies in H.264 format. Can anyone tell me if they play well on the 1410. I will buy the 1810T if I have to but the 1410 fits my pocket better and if it does everything I need it to I can live with the minus 2 hours on the battery.

Acer :: Apsire 1410 With Dual Core Processor

May 5, 2010

Does anyone know were I can find the dual core version of the 1410? Because all the ones that I find now are ones with the single core 1.3GHz Intel Celeron 743 Processor. I think dual core ones are called su2300s. And how much difference would I notice between the single core and the dual cores because i'm really liking this laptop for college and this is the only thing holding me back to buying it.

Acer :: 3810 With Dual-core Proc. Reduced Battery Life

Nov 22, 2009

The Acer Timeline 3810tz is advertised to get 8+ hours of battery life. Those who have tested get about that amount while browsing the web and doing simple task, and this model contains a single core processor. I read somewhere that the Acer 3810 model with a dual core processor SU4100 get half that battery life and only goes about 4 hours.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Ram Upgrade With I7-3520M Dual Core?

Nov 7, 2012

I bought the i7-3520M (dual) and I looked in the manual to see what slots to use for my memory upgrade and the instructions were completely off (where the dummy stick is supposed to be and where it actually was).
 
I purchased two 8GB (Kingston) sticks to replace the 4GB that came installed.  I took out the original 4GB under the keyboard and replaced it with the new 8GB Kingston.  Everything worked great and I've been using it that way for about a week.
 
Tonight I decided to go ahead and install the other 8GB.  I assumed it would go in the bottom slot where there's a dummy stick.  I pulled out the dummy and placed my 8GB there.  Turned the laptop on and... nothing.  It wouldn't power on at all.  I took my 8GB out and put the dummy back and it worked fine.  Just to make sure I didn't get a bad stick, I replaced the one under the keyboard with my other 8GB and it worked fine there.  My question is where is my second 8GB supposed to be installed and does that one dummy stick always stay where it is?  It does have a "do not remove" graphic on it, but I thought it was only because the laptop came with one stick and if you were putting two in you would replace it.

HP/Compaq :: Processor Vs. Ram Vs. HD For Speed/computing

if you could only spec up one (or two but not all) of the above, which would you chose?

A higher/faster processor, more ram, or a faster (rpm) or even dual HD's. I'm just trying to get an idea of what's really the most important.

Dell :: 1525 Replace Celeron CPU?

Apr 16, 2010

I found a Dell 1525 on craigslist, and it has a Celeron cpu. In the case that it is to slow for my liking, [I didn't buy it yet,] I was wondering how easy it was to replace the CPU with, for example, a Coreô2 Duo Processor (i.e. T5450).

So, I googled Dell 1525 motherboard and came up with this. From the looks of that it does not look easy to replace. But on this topic, [scroll down] it says it takes 10 minutes to replace .........

Acer :: Aspire 3680 Celeron 430 Overclocking

Sep 28, 2008

overclocking the Intel Celeron 440 Processor on the Acer Aspire 3680. Here is a screenshot:

As you can see, I overclocked my friend's Acer Aspire 3680. The Celeron M 440 went from 1.86ghz to an amazing 2.35, for an increase of 490mhz! Now, this is definitely not going to be the most safe overclock, and it will consume a lot more power and heat up much quicker, but it is just to show how much you can overclock the Acer 3680.

Here is how I did it:

1. Download CPUCool. (Costs $18 to save your stuff, otherwise it won't for the shareware version)

CPUFSB did not work for me but it may work for you. It is free. Try it

2. Install CPU Cool and say yes to a desktop shortcut and running under windows start up. Now, restart your computer as it tells you too.

3. Go to Functions, change CPU FSB, and then select I don't know. A PLL drop down menu should show up.

4. Make sure it is ICS on the left. Then, go down and choose 954310 all the way at the bottom. Click fine tuning, click ok, and then it should show your frequency. If it doesn't show 1866, and a number less, then download Rightmark CPU Clock Utility and select throttling under profiles and set it to 100%. Unforunately you can't change the voltages.

5. Click fine tuning in CPU Cool, now it should show 1866mhz. Just add 60, 10, or .10 or so mhz by click + 60, +10, or just +. I recommend 2000mhz for the best balance of speed, power, and longevity.

6. Check both boxes as the right under Tray Frequency 1. Click set frequency, ok, and then minimize to tray. Do not close, because your clocks will be reset!....

Dell :: What Upgrades For Basic M6400?

Dec 19, 2009

I just received a M6400 as a replacement for my damaged M90 and other than it having the 4GB of memory it's the most basic configuration. Harddrive is only 150GB.

It'll be used for some internet stuff, some gaming and at times at work running UG-NX.

If you'd be doing any upgrades, what would you do? I've never upgraded a laptop after I've received it and am not quite sure what would be reasonably easy and affordable.

The biggest question in my mind is: will Office 2011 support visual basic for excel?

Yes. We announced in 2008 that Visual Basic for Applications will return to the next version of Office (you can read the blog post about it here: saying hello (again) to Visual Basic). And it's still true: Office:Mac 2011 will support VBA....

Apple :: Basic MBP With Intel X25-m Or Level 2 MBP

Feb 2, 2009

I am thinking of getting the 8600 MBP with 2gb, the basic hard drive, etc. Then replacing the hard drive with the 80gb intel x25-m and selling the the original. This would come out to a few dollars more than the 2.53gb macbook with 4gb and the 320gb hard drive.

I don't need a lot of space because i have multiple terabytes of external media collection hard drives.

Doesn't the 2.4 consume less watts than the 2.53 as well? This would be better for battery life, which I care about.
