Such is stock for new laptops and what works for most. You seen to be overanalyzing the parts in hope of some goal that was not revealed. For instance, one 802.11b/g card tranfers bits just as fast as the next card. Other factors such as what table you sit at has bigger effects.

what about the difference in CPU speed?
by pangelpip / June 18, 2005 4:57 AM PDT

the one i am looking at only has a few differences but $250 more..

Laptop 1
- CPU speed: 725 (1.6GHZ)
Laptop 2
- 735 (1.7GHz)

is there a noticable difference in speed?

Almost unnoticable.

You'd have to run benchmarks, but there is one area that one Centrino will be a bit different. A newer Centrino had more L1/L2 CPU Cache.

But you are doling out small details and no make/models which will make discussion a slow painful process.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
