Lenovo C460 and processors? Which one is better?

Q: Lenovo C460 and processors? Which one is better?

I am thinking of buying a Lenovo C460 desktop touch screen computer from Amazon.
They have one http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Touch-57330367-21-5-Inch-Desktop/dp/B00MCJR39I/ref=dp_ob_title_ce which is the newer model and the older one http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-21-5-Inch-Touchscreen-Desktop-57327734/dp/B00K920DVK/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp.

I see they have different processors. The older one uses the Intel Pentium Dual-Core G3240T 2.7 GHz Processor and the newer one uses the Intel Pentium G3250T 2.8 GHz. Which processor is better?

The newer model is about $42 less so it would be nice to go with that one unless the experts here say otherwise. Other than the processors, both computers are the same. An aside .... what do you guys and gals think of the all in one computers?

Thanks for your help.

Ever since I purchased this C460, it has been nothing but a challenge! I have a brand new motherboard, awesome.. but the PC wakes up on its own.  I have Wake On Lan disabled on the BIOS, Network cards (including WiFi) and keyboard/mouse.  But it still wakes up and gives me a boot error 1962 No Operating System found.  But if I restart, it boots to Windows fine. I am extremely disappointed that not one Lenovo tech in Malaysia nor Philippines can resolve this issue.  Furthermore, I have to repeat myself many many times regarding the issue. Mr. Yang Yuanqing (CEO) will be very displeased when he reads my formal letter.  This PC is an evaluation before making a huge purchase order.  So far, this is having a negative effect.

A:C460 issues

hi medeiom,
 
Sorry to hear about your trouble on the C460 system.
 
I don't have a C460 available here for testing but can you look into the BIOS > Power Tab and ensure that ErP is set to Enabled.
  - Link to picture
 
From this thread:
"Enabling ErP will disable waking from full power off state with anything other than the power switch. With ErP disabled, it's possible to set your computer up to turn on with a click of the mouse or with a keyboard, or with a packet sent to the NIC. It has no effect on waking from sleep.
 
The purpose of it is environmental. When powered off, your motherboard makes sure it has just enough power to receive a power on signal from it's connected devices. if ErP is enabled the motherboard allows itself to full power down."

A:C460 -- Low memory issue

Welcome hemantphanse! Your C460 may have a lot of background processes running that could be due to the software you installed, you could try to reduce any unnecessary background processes by disabling startup programs that may not be necessary.

A:C460 - Bios password reset

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
The simplest solution would be to contact the previous owner, if known, and ask them.
 
Otherwise you could try removing the motherboard battery to clear the CMOS, but that will require a little disassembly.  With the battery removed from the motherboard, press the Power On button for 15 seconds to discharge any residual electrical charge on the motherboard to clear the CMOS which in turn should remove any BIOS passwords..  The link below is for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual for your reference.....

I was aghast for reinstallations of Windows 8 because of reasons unknown which ran operating system into trouble.
Now I know why this happened, because I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig', which really doesn't exists ('Msconfig' showed 4 processors for Intel Core i3210).
From next start Windows 8 ran into trouble and within a day or two of using this desktop stopped responding, happened for all operating systems where I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig'.
Therefore do not select maximum number of processors from 'Msconfig'.

Why the strangeqe question?

you see I have a Dell XPS 15z laptop with a core i7 processor, 8 Giga RAM running Windows 7 Premium and I also have an HP desktop with a core two duo processor, 3 Gigs of ram running Windows 7 Professional but surprizingly the desktop runs faster than the laptop when I give them both tthe same task on Photoshop CS6 ( a processor heavy application). I feel that I have been cheated into buying the Dell laptop which at the time of purchase was expensive in the is country.

A:Are there any new processors that are faster than Core I7 processors

Does it use 100% cpu for a long time? (so cpu is the bottleneck)
Is it a multithreaded application, so are tasks split in many subtasks and use different cores?

Im working on building a server and I need an AMD processor in it. Right now, im looking at AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800BVBOX for $322. The purpose of this server is just a place that 4 computers can access. Its not going to be set up as a server, but just Windows XP without a monitor. Im running an intel pentium 4 on the computer holding the network right now, and it is doing fine. Sometimes its just a little slow. So, I would like a little better than a Pentium 4, but AMD.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

but this one is $20 cheaper- Pentium® D Processor 935 with Dual Core Technology (3.2GHz, 800FSB)
Is there really a big difference?
 

A:Which of these processors is best?

im not quite sure but i think the X2s are better then the Pentium Ds. The X2s are really cheap right now, i recommend at least going for an X2 4000+ or perhaps slightly higher. Get them while there cheap and still available.

Hey every one,

I heard from some one that he heard or read some where that usually in the techonolgy world processor speeds double every 18 months. He said that they well double to a 7ghz processor! He didn't know when they will double the speed he was just passing on the information to me. You know how powerful a processor like that would be like? You could pretty much run any program and game maxed out. (with other high-end hardware.)

Well, I've been looking into get a 3.0 ghz or higher processor and as we all know when some thing bigger and better comes out the ones down below get there prices lowered.

Does any one know any thing on this? What are your thoughts on it?

I am buying a laptop and have pretty much decided on everything i want, however the processor stage is confusing me. I have always bought computers in the past based on their GHz (my current desktop is 3.2 GHz, and i understand how that compares to others).

As i was browsing the Dell gaming notebooks, the Duo Core processors were only clocked up to about 2.16GHz. A similarly specced laptop with a Pentium 4 HT 3.2GHz processor seemed relatively similar in price. Does the duel core processor actually have 1GHz less power. The AMD Turion from Alienware was only 2.4Ghz. Does this mean it has .8Ghz less power?

I want to buy a computer with a processor equivalent or better to my Pentium 4 HT at 3.2GHz, and i don't care about weight or power. I don't paticularly like the laptops i have seen so far with the Pentium 4 chips because i am not getting the 512mb 7900 NVidia i want. Help?
 

A:Help with Processors

GHZ haven't meant much for a while and now they mean Nothing!

The Core Duo is likely better then the P4 3.2, depending on the exact model, but it should be a better choice.

The Turion will be just as good or even better then the Core Duo.

There is nothing wrong with AMD processers in fact they were the industry leaders for quite few years
Intel has introduced the core 2 duo and has taken the lead as the fastest cpu's from Amd.
That said the AMD dual core processers are still pretty quick and could still be fast enough for your needs
Also because Intel core 2 duo are the "must have" at the moment it tends to reflect in the price you pay for machines with them installed

Also I have alot of stuff in my startup and get really frustasted when I don't know what they are. and if they are ok to stop. Is there a page I can go to where it will tell me what is safe to undo and what isnt? I keep getting a message from norton saying I am using all my computer up and not sure what that means either.

A:64 bit processors

relax - your shining new CPU won't become out of date the second 64-bit CPUs appear.

I should expect that 64-bit will primarily effect the server market mostly, and will only trickle down to desktop level after some time. Although there are some operating systems already available for these chips (windows 2000, linux, etc) there aren't a lot of apps yet. 64-bit will become the standard one day - thats for sure - but it will take quite some time.

Now i got a new AMD 2200+, and it has been great for 2 years, and now it runs teribly, no where near what it ran when i first got it. Is there a time limit for how good processors run? I dont think its possible for a processor to become fatigued, as it is a piece of hardware and not a boilogical beeing. I reformat quite often, maybe once every 6 months or so, and update my bios as needed. Anyway if anyone has any answers, or is aware of anything i shoulkd be doing different let me know.

Hi all I'm thinking of getting a new CPU and also I want to understand how CPU work so I have some basic quations .I have made a list of some of the processors and the speeds I do not have all the information on the processors speed I can't find it at any book store or any of my books so here it is .
From the first CPU to now .
1971 4004 first CPU made speed ???
1972 8008
1974 8080 2 MHz
1978 8086 4.77 MHz
1979 8088
1982 80286
1985 80386 16 to 33MHz
1989 80486 33 to 100 MHz
??? K6 166 to 500 MHz
1993 pentim 1 60 to 233 MHz
??? MMX 133 to 233 MHz
1995 pentim pro 150 to 200 MHz
1997 pentim2 233 to 450 MHz
1999 pentim 3 450 to 1.4 GHz
???Intel celeron 1 GHz to 2.2 GHz
2000 pentim 4 1 GHz and can go up to 5 GHz

Top of the line CPU is 3.5 GHz
Top of the line AMD 64 bit processor

Companies that make CPU's
Intel
IBM
AMD
cryrix
IDT

Celenon is made by Intel
Athlon and Duron is made by AMD

New pentium 5 when it comes out 5 GHz and up

I do not have any information on the list blow where it goes in the list above
K7 and D2 and D4 or p6 ..Also is it true that the first CPU used in PCs hand a clook speed of approximately 4.77 MHz
If I was to get a CPU should I get CPU at 3.5 GHz . I think at this time the top of the line CPU is 3.5 GHz. Also is true that pentium 4 when they came out it was 1 GHz and the pentium 4 can go up to 5 GHz and than the pentium 5 will come out?

Anyone have any information ..

Hi,

Ive never quite understood all the small things about processors and one thing that ive come across whislt looking at the new intel ones is the 2,3,4,6 and 8 MB at the end.

For example ive seen an i3 processor that was 2.26Ghz 3MB, and a i5 2.40Ghz 4MB.

The one that confused me the most is that i saw an i7 2.6Ghz 3MB and a i7 1.8Ghz 8MB, i thnk the 1.8 was more expensive!

Can someone explain this to me

Thanks

Matt
 

A:i3, i5 and i7 processors

The "mb" specification next to each of these processors is the amount of on board cache included with the processor.

my pc is a 2.2ghz AMD athlon 32000+....which is the equivelent to a 3.3ghz pentium 4...Click to expand...

That is what my mate said that to me on MSN and I was just wondering if thats true or not?

This is my first post but i have been visiting these forums regulary, glad to be a member
 

A:Processors?

Yeah, the AMD line uses a numbering scheme that roughly equals the Intel counterpart, hence the 3200+ being close to a 3.4GHz P4. It doesn't have that clock in megahertz but because its a good chip, in most games and benchmarks an AMD XP processor will beat a similarly placed P4.

Where the P4 shines is heavy multi-tasking, and when your encoding or doing some other intense number-crunching stuff.

Looked at two-both HP.One has a N2920 Processor and the other N3530.What is the difference?Click to expand...

Intel Celeron N2920 1.86 GHz (2.00 GHz burst speed)

Intel Pentium N3530 2.16 GHz (2.58 GHz burst speed)

The bottom one is faster.

If you submit their model names and model numbers and part/product(P/N) numbers, we can answer your questions better.

Do both come with the same amount of DDR3 RAM?
