Hey guys, my dad got a laptop a week ago and I just snuck on today (he'd kill me...).<br />
<br />
Anyway, specs:<br />
<br />
Merom T7400<br />
Quadro NVS 110 256MB<br />
1440x960 screen<br />
<br />
OMG! This thing puts my baby (core2 rig) to shame.<br />
<br />
Superpi: 23s for 1M. My rig is barely hitting the 25 mark now...<br />
<br />
And it marked 1300 in 3dm03.<br />
<br />
Then my dad came in and told me to get off or my head becomes stringly pulpy stuff...<br />
<br />
Laptops these days are ridiculous.

Well it probably cost 2X as much as your desktop as well <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />

</div>I don't get it...why would a 2Ghz, 667FSB, Dual-Core, 4M Cache beat out your 2.5xxGhz, 1066+FSB, Dual-Core, 2M Cache desktop in superpi?<br />
<br />
That just doesn't add up...unless you're running your RAM ungodly slow, which you shouldn't be with DDR2-900..<br />
<br />
Call me crazy.

I think the 4M cache has something to do with it. And now I'm equalling it.<br />
<br />
But then again, this means T7400 @ 2.13 = E6300 at 2.8<br />
<br />
And his work gave it to him. He is computer hardware illiterate. SO quadro means nothing to him.

Nice man, yeah, that Merom is really fast.<br><br>
Hell I got a Yonah, and I love it, I could only imagine Merom.
