Hi I would like to know if intel b987 is better than amd e2 1800. I've read that the first runs at 1,5 GHZ and than the other at 1,7, but I've also read some very confusing information. I own a Notebook Lenovo g485 amd e2 1800, 4gb RAM, W7 home basic x 64 bits.
I like the Lenovo s400 with intel processor b987 ultrabook, 4 RAM, same OS.
I thought it could be an "upgrade" but now I'm not so sure.
Waiting to hear for you. Thanks.

Unfortunately, you can't compare processing power between AMD and Intel by looking at clock speed of the processor. I would call that a side-grade at best unless the Intel machine has a good dedicated graphics card

Thanks I get i now, kind of..., I think b987 has 2mb caché and amd e2 1800 has 1, but may be the performance is basically the same. I still would like to know more about it.

happy reading
Edit - it appears to be more of a step than I had thought
in the comparison chart, the P B987 is ranked 288 while the AMD (I thought was higher) ranks 413

Thanks C, I'll chek it out. I thought it was higher too. The graphics are great though.

Have another problem now...
Hey everyone, I hope you could give me some help with this. I own a Lenovo Notebook bought on January 2013. Two 3.0 usb ports and a single 2.0
I bought a Kingston DT111 3.0 8gb and I have two problems with that. First, the pendrive appears to be only 7,3 gb, and then the data transfer speed goes up to 5mb/s. I formatted the USB and still the same. The drivers on W7 home basic also appear to be ok. What is your opinion? Thanks.

This one I don't have input on... seems I often struggle with flash drives and their idiosyncrisies myself. I'll suggest a new thread here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-32.html - see if that won't get you somewhere
