Hello,
My WEI CPU number is 6.1
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo T9500 2.60
My friend's CPU is 5.7 However,
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo T9900 3.06
Why?

Mine Dell Windows 7
His HP Vista

Overall his is faster (game computer) since his graphics and gaming scores are a lot higher.
Thanks,
John

they don't use the same calculation. windows 7 is a tweaked version of vista's wei. as is, the figures mean very little in either version.

If I am not mistaken, the maximum score in Vista is 5.9. They raised it to 7.9 in Windows 7.

Correct.

Taking into account scales:

You: 77% of max (W7)

Your friend: 96% of max (Vista)

The scale is sort of arbitrary, it's just to give you an idea of performance in a simple manner. A more serious independent bench like those from PassMark will give you a more consistent picture of the actual performance difference.
