Is there any computer expert? I would ask about CPU as T2060

Hi expats!

I would know about CPU of T2060 since i'm looking for a laptop for me recently.
actually i was consider sony vaio c21 which is coreduo T2060 and i would memory upgrade as 1G. but someone said T2060 is like almost celeron just gain title as coreduo. is that true?
If u r user of this model or able to explain about t2060 then please reply me.

I don't play computer game but i don't feel free with low speed for internet. and someone mentioned it takes several min to booting and off. is that true? actually this model has to go with window vista and they said this specs can't stand with Window vista. if ever window xp but they don't provide grograms for xp with this model.

It's hard to decide the model since i would go for minimum of budget.
Please give me an idea if u have. Thanks in advance. Cheers!

The speed of the computer makes no difference to the speed of The Internet.

actually this model has to go with window vista and they said this specs can't stand with Window vista. if ever window xp but they don't provide grograms for xp with this model.


I don't understand what you are trying to say here.

Then forget Sony. :P

Do you think what makes difference speed with your laptop then?
CPU and memory. isn't it? Seems just kidding me with ur huge of time.
Then what was that the guy from lenovo said there's only about 18% of difference between coreduo and core2duo?

I feel like at kindergarden! :D :) :D

You also act like at kindergarten.

For someone who "THINKS" they know so much, why are you here?

michelle1024, for browsing interent, the most important component is the method of connectivity to the internet - if you have a very fast machine with a dial-up connection then the bottleneck will be the dial-up - fast CPU's and lot's of memory are for local processing (applications running ON the computer) and not really required for internet browsing

Michelle,

C series is 13.3 inch screen that comes in a few colors. They are Core Duo processors. Look for Core 2 Duo but since you said you are not any gaming. Core Duo would be ideal But if you are doing heavy graphics application, video editing etc. Then Core 2 Duo with at least 1GB RAM would be idea.

Check out Sony's Vaio site. It gives detail specs. Also, check out Dell to compare pricess and value.

3 most important factors that affect the performance of a laptop are:
- Hard disc (HD)
- RAM
- The junk they load on your laptop

The processor doesn't really matter (*gasps*!) for most typical laptop users.

Every component on a laptop is a specialised part that's optimised for low-power usage. The HD performance is most noticably affected by this low power requirement. More RAM usually reduces the usage of HD => higher performance. And all the software "extra" (eg junk) they load on your laptop hinders performance SIGNICANTLY, especially the anti-virus stuff.

In short:
- Get a laptop with at least 1gig of RAM
- Read reviews of the HD used by the laptop, compare with others if needed. If you have $$$ to burn you can get those new solid-state HDs ;)
- Disable startup software. Anti-virus software is over-rated.
