These are light years ahead of the usual core 2 duo equipped machines. This is like moving from a prop plane to a fighter jet (c2d to i7.)
If DNS fails to perform on the slowest i7 of the lot, then DNS is going to be written about badly by all.
Hi, Getting Lenovo W701ds. I need a fast processor to handle Dragon Naturally Speaking, which is a memory hog, especially since the vocabulary I use is over 1gb. Does anyone know the differences between the following 3 processors offered: 1)Intel Quad Core Processor i7 720QM (1.6GHz 1066MHz 6MBL3), 2) Intel Quad Core Processor i7 820QM (1.73GHz 1066MHz 8MBL3], 3) Intel Quad Core Extreme Processor i7-920XM (2.0GHz 1333MHz 8ML3). The question really comes down to: the i7-920XM is a lot more money. Is it a lot faster? Clearly the RAM is 1333mHz. Will that be that noticeable? Thanks.
