So currently, my primary computer is a four-year-old Inspiron 6000:
- Pentium M 1.60 GHz Processor (2MB cache; 400 MHz FSB)
- 2GB RAM
- Intel 915GM Integrated Graphics Card
- Running Ubuntu 8.04
- 160GB HDD
My Dell Mini 10v should be arriving on the 21st with the N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD
(it shipped with Ubuntu, but I'll be loading it with OSX). So my question is this: how will the two computers compare? Obviously, running Ubuntu and OSX, I don't care so much about gaming, but in terms of things like boot time, responsiveness when performing everyday tasks, flash rendering, things like that.
On the other hand, I do a fair amount of numerical simulations (writing in C). In terms of sheer brute-force number-crunching, anyone know how the two will stack up?
