Our iTunes workload is single-threaded, so Lenovo’s reliance on a dual-core CPU isn’t much of a disadvantage against more complex quad-core processors in this test. It still suffers from a lower clock rate, however. The same applies to our LAME benchmark.
Our video encoding tests are well-optimized for threading though, which helps the Dell machine justify its added expense.
