He assured me there would not be a p4 to touch mine if I got serious about benching. Right now I am 6th on the orb and I am really in no mood to try for more. I just am happy to know my $1399 lappy will toast anything out there when it comes to cpu tasks......If you think yours is faster, prove it. I will get a pic up soon.
Reminds me of the following story when I went to the track with a buddy:
They were doing 1/4 mile acceleration tests from idle between two cars. After watching a few rounds, we noticed this white Hyundai hatchback was seriously smoking some fast cars (Supra, RX-7, Mustang). My friend tried figuring out what he could've done under the hood but the math wasn't right- he was dumbfounded.
Finally after it was all over we went down and took a look at the car along with 80% of the spectators who were probably wondering the same thing. The guy opens his hood and it looks pretty much like a stock engine, nothing fancy. He then opens the hatchback which revealed a second engine that was whirring.
In the end we both commented on how cool it was, but said we wouldn't be caught dead in it.
That's how I feel about Emachines.
