I just got a new laptop with an i3@ 2.3Ghz and 4GB of ddr3 ram so that I could play some games (I wanted to play world of warcraft) anyway I've been in this lttle hacker loop for 4 years now and my most powerful computer was a 1.86Ghz celeron, this thing runs circles around it! And I even payed less for it! wtf have I been missing!? It's like I just stepped into the future Shocked

I wonder what an i5 quad is like??? Shocked

So, the simple CPU difference in speed (1.86Ghz vs. 2.3Ghz) is not a criterion to watch for while comparing computer systems?
Something else is adding to the experience.
Probably bus speed and size (how many bits it can pass).
Also, caches: L1, 2 and 3.
And multiple cores, of course.

Yeah, it's an x2, I think all i3s are??? Yeah, chaches are bigger, I don't think me celeron even has an L3 cache... Of course 4GB of ddr3 is also much faster then ddr2 @ 2GB, im sure its built in sandy bridge graphics also have a play...

You can expect everything to be faster. HDD, internal buses, RAM, CPU, video, etc. I doubt you pin down the speed difference to any one thing, all the parts are operating in concert.
