I've had this for about 6 months, and performance has always been unsatisfactory.
Before buying it, I read a bunch of reviews about it's 'blistering performance' etc, so am pretty disappointed.
I contacted @DellCares, and a guy logged on a did updates and stuff (it was already pretty up-to-date already), and maybe performance is a little better now.
My problem is I don't really know if my unit is slower than it should be, or if I just got <Profanity removed> into buying the wrong laptop, and I should have bought something else. E.g. something with more cores.
I was hoping someone with the exact same machine, could run a Cinebench benchmark and compare it with mine.
My results from Cinebench:
Where exactly are you seeing the performance problems? I have hesitations with such things as scrolling windows and system sounds, but are you looking at videos or games? Is it related to anything related to online performance?
I am very hesitant to put anything on my system I don't actually and am not familiar with so hopefully we can test other ways.
Well, I downloaded R20 but did not really see an install option. I tried running the .exe file and it did start the program but when I tried to run it, I got a warning about components missing.
I will just say I have 16 GB of memory which might make a difference, since it seems the program needs quite a bit.
I never expected the system to have great performance, but I can understand how the hyping the performance in advertising, it is easy to get the impression it would have the power you need. When I need power, I use my Desktop gaming system.
I also have 16GB, but it's definitely CPU that is my limiting factor.
I was hoping by spending the extra money on this laptop (which wasn't cheap), it would give me portability _and_ performance.
