A6 quad core, 4GB of RAM (will upgrade to 8GB), 500GB HDD (will upgrade to SSD)
Will this be adequate for my needs? They are:
- zero gaming
- multi-tasking is the most CPU-intensive thing I do on a regular basis (40-60 Chrome tabs open while playing music, with Excel and Word and Foxit Reader open)
- occasional basic photo editing
- occasional ripping of DVDs and CDs
- zero video editing
- basically, an Internet and MS Office user
Is this is a good price for what I'm getting?
Stability/reliability is my main goal.
Current laptop: Asus ULV-50T with U7300 processor, 4GB, SSD helped but still a bit slow sometimes
Will this quadcore provide a significant improvement in everyday use?
Or should I wait for the Ivy Bridge laptops to come out in the fall?
Was told that more cores = better for multitasking. True or false?
