Hello everyone, I am happy to have found you. I have a general question about hardware and hoping that someone might help me.

I bought a laptop today, however, it was not the original laptop I was seeking. I wanted a computer that would allow me to play WoW – so my concern was RAM and the video card.

However, my issue is that I am not well versed in “dual processors” and the particular laptop I bought has one.

I guess my question is, what are the differences between a dual processor and a regular processor.

The processor in my laptop is: T2300 @ 166 GHZ and I have 2MBs of RAM. So far its running great, and plays wow perfect. I originally was seeking a 3.0ghz.

How does my processor compare to say a 3.4ghz?

The laptop I purchased is a Apire 5670 (acer), I would like to know your opinion.

Anyway, I hope to meet some new friends, perhaps contribute to the community, and learn a thing or two. Look forward to talking with all of you.

Bah I just saw the "title of the post" in the rules -- I am sorry for just saying hello. :thumbsup:

Welcome to BC. Seems like a nice computer. If you would like I could transfer this to the Hardware Forum or you could leave it here so other members can meet you and you could start a topic in Hardware.
Whatever you decide is fine. Have a good time.

:thumbsup: to BC! Morrigu.
Laptops don't have as good as a video card as compared to desktop computers. I prefer desktop computers for gaming over laptops.

Good Luck,
yano :flowers:
