my mom has me using nero like 24/7 (old home movies that are an avi format to dvd) . should i keep on using my laptop (1.9ghz turion X2, vista home premium, 2gb of ram) or use the company computer (3ghz pentium D, xp home, 1gb ram). which would be faster?

the pentium d would do any encoding faster, but the burn itself would be regulated by the speed of your dvd burner. if you're just burning cds, go with the faster burner, if you're encoding movies, slap some more ram in your desktop and use it.

I think the amd would be on par, or faster due to more memory

Also, we're discussing intel because it seems like there's no way to enforce pure-AMD build threads in this forum. It should be renamed the 'you really want intel instead' forum.

If they both have good DVD burners (same speed) then run a SuperPI on both of them and see who wins

Super PI is biased towards intel

But with double the memory and a comparable chip i'd go for the laptop (a 1900 mhz amd is about the same as a 3000 mhz PD)

I say Super Pi and use the winner!
