Dear Members


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.

So the laptop is only unresponsive when doing certain tasks? Or is it very slow all the time?
