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.

So my Lenovo Yoga 910-13IKB (Out of warrenty) was working fine this past Friday in the morning. I plugged it in to my charger, closed the screen and went to lunch and when I came back the computer was really really slow. So I opened the task manager and looked at the processor and it was running at 13% utilization and clocked at .38GHz (Normal clock speed is 2.70GHz) I restarted the computer a few times. Did a full shut down, then restarted in saftey mode and ran a root kit scan (Found nothing). I then powered it off so I could get all my files off before it died, but when I restarted it later that evening it was dead (Powered off at 50% battery) So now I am stuck with a dead computer that will not charge. My thinking is that something on the Type-C charging board shorted out somehow and caused an errant voltage that messeed with the processors, drained the battery, and prevented charging. It could only be like 3 things right?-The charging port board (Type-C)-The motherboard (Which basically everything is soldered to, so I would not replace)-The Battery Any thoughts? If this is likely the correct diagnosis I might replace the board, but I do not want to spend $100 for nothing.

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 - 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 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?

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.

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

Gonna take a wild guess and say the amd runs hotter, the p4's need very good cooling.

This is strictly for gamming only i already have a $300au motherboard lined up i just need help deciding on a processor.

Thanks :angel:
 

A:Processors Which one is better!

For gaming the 4000+ would be better as it has a clockspeed of 2.4Ghz (the 4400+ runs at 2.2Ghz). Games are still single-threaded & will not be able to make use of the 2nd core on the 4400+.

That said, if you like to game while having MP3s compressed in the background or DVDShrink running, the 4400+ is the better choice.

Don't you like it when there isn't one clear answer ?

Your question does not really have a definitive answer; it is too vague. We would need to know what the intended use of the system is to be ie are you intending on gaming, doing video editing, just email/web surfing, what?

It is somewhat like asking "What is the best car" Well there are a lot of cars and they have different attributes such as a sports car might not be the best choice for an area that gets a LOT of snow. If that were the case, a 4x4 truck would be "Better" than the sports car.

Okay, now my question is: Can you run a 64-bit OS on 2-32 bit processors? Note: i don't want to try this, but in theory it should work if the OS can address both processors as 1 64 bit processor, correct?

A:64-bit os on (2) 32-bit processors?

No it won't. That theory falls flat on its face as you don't get 64 bit computing from two 32 bit processors. The processor either supports 64 bit or it doesn't. Same applies to quad core processors; it is 4 cores running at a set speed (2.4 GHz for example), not as a processor running at 9.6 GHZ (don't know if they are still there, but there used to be a few that tried to pull this scam on ebay).

I am looking to buying a new PC but I am struggling to decide between to processors. Either the i7-930 or the i7-870.

Here's the thing, they are pretty equal so its a toss up of what is more important. Please give me your input. Everything will be appreciated.

A:Some help with processors please...

I'm running the i7-870 on an Asus board. Assembled it in early August with no problems since.

I also considered the i7-930. The price difference of the chip and the x58 motherboard and RAM was more than my budget could handle.
You can't go wrong either way. There are other similar set ups to mine by users on the forum and others with the 930.

Price seems to be the major difference not performance.

I saved the money and I am well satisfied with the ASUS motherboard combo I have.
The 870 will OC to 3.8GHz with no problem.
I had to try it once.
Not sure of the limit but have heard about them up to 4.0.
So they aren't a dog.

I am looking into upgrading my motherboard/cpu, and currently I have a 1 gig amd athlon. What I am wondering is what is the "rating" for AMDs processors..

Like I know with intel, its like centrino is best, then theres pentium, then like the worst is the celerons.. just wondering how the AMD compares, for like athlon, duran, sempron..

Thanks!

Hello all

I need help on this one i only have (4) processors.

What do i do with (8) this is not right.

Thanks for your help

Not to worry. With hyper-threading enabled, one would expect to see 8 on a quad processor.

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 ..
