Atom n270 or Core Duo T2350 Tags: CPUs Laptops Core Lenovo Hard Drives Last response: June 8, 2010 1:34 PM in CPUs Share johnb79 June 8, 2010 12:38:14 PM Hello, I own a lenovo laptop (3000 N100) which has Core Duo T2350, 1GB RAM, 5400rpm harddisk. I want to buy another laptop called Lenovo IdeaPad S12 2959 (very similar to this one): http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-s12-2959... It has Atom n270 with 2GB RAM, NVIDIA ION, 5400rpm harddisk. My question is: which one will be faster for program compilation and simulation, like MATLAB, Quartus II, ModelSim etc. I have read that Atom is a low-power CPU, but I didn't find any reference that specifics whether it will be better (or at least the same) then the Core Duo. Thanks, John More about : atom n270 core duo t2350 randomizer a b à CPUs June 8, 2010 1:34:45 PM If you want to do anything beyond emailing and surfing the net, Atom is useless. The N270 isn't even a dual-core version. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
