Lost in the Sea of Laptops or Computers?

Solve Your Sea Sickness:)

What is the difference between that $429.99 and that $479.99 besides $50? or is that $1200 one amazing?
Well one way to tell is to use a utility provided by Microsoft, included with Windows Vista and 7.
It is called the system rating, it rates the PC/Laptop on 5 categories with score from
  • 1.0 to 5.9 (Windows Vista)
  • 1.0 to 7.9 (Windows 7)
Windows Aero the Glass theme recommends a 3.0 - the higher the score the better.
The score is the lowest number of the 5 categories......
  • Processor
  • Memory
  • Graphics
  • Gaming Graphics
  • Primary Hard Drive
For example the comptuer I am working on has a 5.2 Rating
  • 5.2 Processor
  • 5.9 Memory
  • 5.9 Graphics
  • 5.5 Gaming Graphics
  • 5.6 Hard Drive
So the thing holding it back is the processor.
Final thoughts - Figure out what you can afford and get the system with the highest rating in the category that fits your usage.....
Talk to you next Time.
