Thanks, Abi Gail, for the practical advice.  Would that I had gone for the i5 processor last spring! Sad

It's been a pleasure chatting with you.

That speaks to my earlier point of trying to anticipate what we will need down the road, rather than just getting what will handle L4 today.

God Bless.

I am just wondering if getting an i7 laptop would make a difference - of course, with dedicated graphics card and 4-6 GB RAM and fast drive - that is, would I be able to perceive it. It sounds like I would.

Yes. Get the best you can afford. If battery life is important then you need to find i7's that give more than 1.5 hrs!

Ton,

I am very puzzled by your CPU specs. Is it truly a Pentium II processor or has it been misidentified? I have never heard of a Pentium II that could run at 3.2 Ghz let alone address 3 gig of RAM. I suspect it has been mislabeled by Novabench. Just curious.

Ha!

It;s an Intel i5 650 processor, indeed!

I knew it had to be something much more than a Pentium II. I wonder why Nova bench identified it as such? But I have learned over the years that no utility is infallible. PC Wizard says that I have 8 Gig of RAM when in fact I only have 4. And CPUID Hardware Monitor says my motherboard temperature is 9 degrees C (48 degrees F). Pretty nice trick since the ambient temp is 69 degrees F.

Nice, Bob! Congrats. Is there a noticable difference in L4, and if so, where?

P.S.  I have to say I like "infinity" more.   Wink
