"Test" with what goal in mind?
Peformance compared to what? The problem that I see with any "benchmark" or other software proclaiming the ability to "measure performance"...is that each one uses a different set of "standards" which are not really defined...and the database for one is not the database used by another.
Apology for not being clear as the OP.
The simple goal is to know if a laptop is performing as it should be, say, with certain intel chip, certain graphic chip. My naive assumption is for any hardware, there should be manufacture and wear-and-tear issues. If I can "test" the performance, I would know how "good" a laptop is, at least as good as it claims to be.
Is this an unrealistic goal, realistic but unnecessary, or ... ?
Did the original question + some clarification make sense ?
