I'm looking at 2 laptops, that have different video cards and processors. One has the Intel T7400cpu the other Intel P8400. I can't seem to find benchmark info for the P8400 to compare against the T7400. Can anyone tell me how significant the performance difference of the T7400 has over the P8400?
Mostly normal applications, but doing video editing using Adobe Premiere 4.0 that is currently cpu bound on my AMD Turion 64x2 laptop.
Video cards are diff as well:
T7400 ------> Nvidia 8700 GT 512MB
P8400 ------> Nvidia 9400m GS 1024MB
the benchmarks I have found are contradictory on video....one has them very close overall, another had the 8700 GT with a ~25% advantage.
The price tags are very close once I removed the expensive ram upgrade, so I'm trying to determine which way to go.
Thank you in advance!
I'm not doing any gaming....but video editing and am looking for the best mix of features for my budget. Yes, one laptop is geared for gaming which I thought might be a good option. But it sounds as if those optimizations for gaming, don't help in video encoding. thanks for your reply.
