i was about to purchase a dell 9100 when they have gone and been replaced by a 9150. I can get the regular pc but the middle and top range ones now have a pentium D processor with media center built in. I dont wanna watch tv but it seems to sell the music, photo and video editing side of things which seems good. is this the way forward or not. I also what the machine to run my small business chores like a database. is this pentium d and media center the new standard ? Buy or stick to what i know
From what I understand, dual-core has yet to be optimized for a lot of apps, and for games especially the single-cores perform better than the equivalent duals. Combined with the current high price of the dual cores, I have chosen to go with a single-core for now. Don't forget also hyperthreading is featured on the single-core p4s, which is a similar feature to dual-core, perhaps not quite as efficient but it works.
