I am using a dual core desktop and a core i5 laptop. Normally the laptop is a bit faster but sometimes it performs very slow (while importing data from Excel to ArcGIS) as compared to the desktop. The laptop has 8 gb ram and 512mb graphics, while the desktop has 3 gb ram and no graphics memory. When importing the data maximum CPU usage for laptop is 70% and ram used is only 26%, still it takes almost 5 minutes to become responsive. But the desktop takes only 40-50 seconds to complete the same operation.
What can be the possible reasons for this.
