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 .....

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Upgrade From Pentium To Core I5?

Jan 6, 2015

Does Inspiron N5010 support the i5-480M processor? I've found this thread but I don't see it in the supported CPUs list.

Currently I'm running on a Pentium P6100 and I'm thinking of upgrading to i5 480m. Is this upgrade worth it?

Finally I want to ask if the existing cooling system is sufficient for an i5 480m because I don't want my laptop to suffer from overheating issues.

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.

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 :: 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 :: 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.

Acer :: Pentium T3200

Nov 18, 2008

Intel says the T3200 is a pentium dual core. Pcwizard says the cpu is a c2d T5750. So does that mean the T3200 is a renamed c2d with some cache disabled? And why doesn't the American Acer site have the 5735z in the support section? I know its a bottom barrel item but at least show some support. I noticed the 4630 has the same specs except for the screen size. Can the Bios and driver intertwine?

Acer :: Upgrading TravelMate 290 Series (Pentium M 755)

Feb 18, 2008

I am upgrading my TM 292 (1400x1050, Pentium M 1,5 GHz, Ati Mobility Radeon 9700 - 64MB VRAM) with an Intel Pentium M 2,0 GHz (755).

When I start the notebook, with a mounted 2 GHz CPU, it starts for a few seconds, then the first two LEDs flash and everything goes off.

My BIOS is 1.40 (you can only get 1.30b from the Acer homepage).

Has anyone a Travelmate 290 with a Pentium M 755?

I noticed that there are Compal CL56 (structurally identical to TM 290 series) with 2.0GHz. Can I use their BIOS?

HP/Compaq :: 6930p "Core2Duo Whine Noise" Has Been Resolved- Without Disabling Speedstep

Jun 12, 2009

I just got a new Elitebook 6930p and its a fantastic laptop other than the dreaded "CPU whine" as some call it. Most uneducated people believe it is the CPU that makes this noise but in reality this has NOTHING to do with the CPU. Its the power components like capacitors and coils that make the Piezoelectric Effect which causes the noise.

I could not bear the whine noise after a few days so I took matters into my own hands. Sure I read about stopping the C1-C4 states in Intels speedstep but thats not a proper solution IMO since battery life will suffer. So how can we mask or cover up this annoying noise? How can we seal it inside the laptop so it does not reach our ears? I have the solution!

tube.JPG

Seal it up all the power components with silicon sealer. Silicon sealer is perfect as it does not conduct electricity. These components do NOT generate any heat either.
