Windows Experience Index not what is expected

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

    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.
