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 - 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)

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.

Amd athlon 64 4000+ (939)

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 ?

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

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.

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

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.

Thanks.

Btw: overclocking isn't an issue, if that's any help.

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

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

Thanks for your help

A:Processors i7

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

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?
