I just changed my laptop. My old laptop (HP2230s) has Core 2 Duo T5870 that runs at 2.00Ghz and has 2 MB L2 Cache. It has a WEI index of 5.0 (windows 7)
My NEW Laptop, (Lenovo Thinkpad T420i) which has i3 2310m, that runs at 2.10Ghz and has 3M Cache. The WEI index is only 3.4!
My older laptop (Thinkpad x61) which has Core 2 Duo, T8100 has a better WEI Score.
I wanna ask, why are my previous laptops are better than my new laptop? Everything else in my new laptop are better than my old ones. (graphics, hdd, RAM) etc...
Also I really notice the speed of the i3. For example:
When I have powerpoint open and watching a HD video on youtube, the video lags. When I try to move things around, scroll in powerpoint, it lags and sometimes freezes. I don't know why because I'm pretty sure that my laptop is fast enough for basic office applications. Why is this happening?
It's not my HDD speed because it runs at 7200 RPM. I also have enough RAM. I have 4GB DDR3 1600MHz.
Please help please!
