I also use a Raptor in my desktop pc and I don't want to lose this performance bonus. Is the core duo (compared with a P4 3,0) able to compensate this?
I had the benefits of the 10k rpm raptor especially in loading times, extracting huge compressed files etc. But Nx9420's 5400 rpm hdd is also fine, with 1 gigs of 667 mhz ram, the machine is flying! A fast hdd gives you faster loadings yes, but if you are running multiple apps at the same time the core duo cpu really rocks at this point. I am really excited by the performance of this notebook after my AMD64 3000+ with 10k rpm raptor.
Here is an example : While I am waiting for the game load in World of Warcraft, my desktop pc comes up faster, but in game performance is much more better because of a faster cpu and faster rams.
