AMD A6-4400M CPU or Intel i3 2330M CPU - Page 3

post #21 of 41
Thread Starter 
Well this Toshiba i3 L745-S4310 says that it has HD 3000 graphics. As I said I have 8gb ram and a 120gb SSD in it. Is the i7 Clarksfield better or is the i3 Sandy Bridge? Keep in mind that they both will have 8gb ram and a 120gb SSD HDD

What is CPU speed going to do for you on a laptop? all you really need is a decent CPU and a SSD. Sure a Faster CPU will extract a RAR sligtly faster, but what real world thing is he gonna do that requires more of it? I doubt he plans to fold on a laptop. For a A6 laptop though your gonna want new ram in it ASAP. Get the fastest DDR3 you can get your hands on for it, will improve gaming performance.

I have a T9600 and with a SSD it feels just as fast as my desktop. Things like browsing the web has no benefit from a faster CPU.

The HD4000 is a laggy mess, frame drops rolleyes.gif Can't turn settings up high enough
The A6 or A8 or 10 if you can would game circles around a HD4000 in terms of smoothness.


Benchmarks are still benchmarks, not real world apps

Get the APU
Balanced system is the way to go

Though sometime this year second gen trinity APU's will be coming with HSA improvements, would be worth saving up for if you can wait. May go for one myself seeing that I have no need for more CPU performance then what my T9600 already gives, and getting rid of this gtx260m for something that doesnt run so hot with poor battery life may be worth it.

That is my thing.. I want something that I can get GREAT battery life on along with something that doesnt run hot and use alot of power. How would the Lenovo T420 that the other person was talking about be compared to the Toshiba L745-S4310?

oh.

It would make a difference for me, between i5 and i3, but probably not for you. (( I multi task so hard that it crippled my 2500k )) loool.

as you said your probably doing light work and gaming on it.

rolleyes.gif as everyone is telling you to go APU, go for it.

I have used it and it is slow to a certain extent. Atom is still old tech though
My Atom 330 Home Server still is plenty fast for what it does, even if you have to wait for things to process. Used a single Core Atom before and cant recommend it, though really anything Athlon x2 and forward are enough for most users. After the Athlon X2/C2D at around 2ghz+ a user would get more performance boost from a SSD IMO

That i3 is faster then the i5, but thinkpads are some of the best laptop on the planet. I still use my T61p as my backup laptop, the screen rez it has still make me sad that I don't use it as my main. You will never be disappointed while using a thinkpad is all I have to say, regardless if your using a slower CPU. They are more comparable to a Macbook Pro in terms of build quality, then most of those cheap acer/asus/toshiba notebooks.

ok so my final question on this for everyones opinion.. the Sandy i3, the Lenovo i5, the HP A6-4400M or the old i7? Like I said ... they will all have a SSD and be maxed out at 8gb ram.

Thanks again
