Hi, I am between two laptops at the moment. The first is a Lenovo with intel B950 (2.1Ghz) & 8Gb RAM and the other a Samsung with Core i5-2410M (2.3Ghz) & 6Gb RAM. Though at comparison the i5 ranks better than the B950, I don't know if the RAM difference would make Lenovo faster.
I don't play games, but I have the laptop on for 15 to 18 hours daily, I watch a lot of movies, listen to a lot of music, download and surf for the most part of those hours and generally I run many processes simultaneusly. I also work video editing software like Sony Vegas and Pinnacle. I am looking for the fastest solution and at the same time something that would hopefully last longer, coz with all these activities for all these hours I don't suppose anything at this budget (£300) will any way last for very long.
Please be as simple as possible coz I am not familiar with the particular jargon. Thanks a lot.
B950 Passmark 1800 - Rank 687
Core i5-2410M Passmark 3169 - Rank 397
