Re: Reasonable multi task proccessor?

Well hopefully I'll do both. Can you recommend a free clean up program that is easy to use or is it better to buy something?

I will dig out the spec for the AMD and post it. Thanks. smile

CCleaner : Be sure to double check the IE/App settings before cleaning.

A AMD phenom quad core processor with 4GB of ram will do you fine, not sure what AMD laptop processors are like these days, but it will certainly be fast enough for you.

I got a phenom quad core in my dekstop, ok so it is a desktop version, but it is super fast.


If you don't feel like spending the money, as people have said a bit more memory in your P4 will make it a bit faster, I stuck a gig in a P4 a few months back, went from 1gig to 2 and it felt a lot better.

I have one of these which I use for everyday browsing and document/spreadsheet use when I'm on the move or simply too lazy to go upstairs to the study!

It's very fast and does everything I can ask of it.....

When I bought it, it was on offer in Argos at £399.99, but they don't sell it any more (new catalogue).

I think I'll do both, I need a laptop anyway to be honest. I liked the sound of the Phenom quad core but it's nice to have a recommend from people actually using them. smile

As for speeding up my desktop, isn't it true that only Dell memory will fit a Dell machine? Or have I been misinformed?

Thanks. I can now check if that is the same processor in the model I was thinking about buying. smile

I liked the look of the Acer, but I think the one I saw had rocker buttons on the touch pad?

I like the HP because it had "real" buttons if you like. Probably not a really good reason to choose between laptops, but I hate the rocker type buttons and couldn't see any others at that price point (400 quid) that had real separate buttons.

Anybody got a reason not to buy HP?

I'd go to one of the memory supplier sites and run their memory checker. Orcalogic or Crucial. I've put memory from Orca in a Dell with no problems.

I just noticed the uptime.

Not bad resources, considering (laptop remember). smile
