Re: Macbook Core duo vs macbook core 2 duo

Thanks.

Well, that's what I was getting at. Was wondering if the macbooks processor was superior to what Dell was using. However, would have to find out which exact chip is in each laptop, both years old.

Re: Suggestions for my hot running modded laptop please?

Your laptop could boil some soup (depending on altitude and salt content)! I get that laptops run hot... The thing is, it seems to vary quite a bit. And somewhere, is a thread about others with my same laptop, modded with the same graphics card, (some even with only a single heatsink) getting lower ...

Re: Is a core2duo (core i3) worth 80$ more than a P. Dual Core?

Well, I was brought along to advise someone on the purchase of a new laptop. They were choosing between 2 Toshiba's. One had a i3 (Core 2 Duo), the other a Pentium Dual Core. The price difference was 80$. They are a business / office program / browsing user, so could of gotten away with the Pentium ...

A friend has a few year old Macbook with a 1.83 core duo... how does that compare to a 2ghz core 2 duo??? I have searched for benchmarks but not sure what program is best to use, or what source to trust on the matter, so figured I'd ask here. I know, search feature.... but can anyone break it down s...

Is a core2duo (core i3) worth 80$ more than a P. Dual Core?

My question: Is a core2duo (core i3) worth 80$ more than a P. Dual Core??? I recently advised someone, only using the machine for business, (office programs), web browsing, and games like windows default card games, to get the better chipset, due to the larger L2 cache....(not sure what it was on th...

Re: Suggestions for my hot running modded laptop please?

Well, I am looking for the thread where people with E1705 / Inspiron 9400 who modded to put in a 7900 GS GO post their temps, as mine still seems hotter than theirs, as I recall.. Haven't done the thermal paste yet, will do it on both cpu and gpu, and do a thorough cleaning inside... It's getting an...

Re: Artificats in games or overheating on my 7900 GS GO?

Well, I still have this problem... I am wondering, might it be worthwhile to re-install the ATI x1400 that came with this Dell E1705 / 9400...??? Is it a 256 or a 128? I am thinking 128, and my GEFORCE 7900GS GO is the 256 ( not 512) I mean when I think back, my fan wasn't always running when I had ...

Re: Artificats in games or overheating on my 7900 GS GO?

Thanks mucho for all the suggestions... ibleet, glad to know.... I suppose it could be any of these issues... The timeline is a bit fuzzy, I bought this for gaming but didn't game much after buying it, till a while later (2+ years). I know other games seem to work fine, it's the higher demand games/...

Re: Suggestions for my hot running modded laptop please?

Well, it's hard to say how hot it ran before that, since I didn't do any serious gaming for a period of time.... It still got pretty hot I believe.. and I have blown it out without taking it apart (through the vents, etc). Could use some brushing up on some technical areas. I saw a thread on a googl...

Re: Suggestions for my hot running modded laptop please?

Hmmm, I've had it 2 years now, could that still be the case?

everything seemed to go in seamlessly.... It's been so long though, maybe I should open her up and blow out with air, lap/sand/thermal paste anyways...
