First I checked the notebooks in Business Winstone 2004 and Content Creation Winstone 2004 benchmarks:
It’s hard to comment on the results of this test because there’s no detailed information about it and I don’t know what weights its subtests have in the overall score. So, it’s just “this notebook is faster than that one” – and you can compare the reviewed models as they are ranked in the diagrams. The results of the battery life test are much more interesting. As I had supposed it doesn’t matter how many cores a processor has. I tested two notebooks: LG T1 and Toshiba Tecra A6-S513.
As you can see, the notebooks perform better when powered from the wall socket, but the difference is rather small.
