    How much better specs (if so) than my old desktop computer 8th Jul 17 at 8:00 AM
    Just curious how much better (if so) than the specs on a new Laptop I have bought but not yet received.

    These are the specs of a Zoostorm desktop computer now running Windows 10 I bought and have used since 2010

    2.93 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual-Core
    64 kilobyte primary memory cache
    2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
    64-bit ready
    Multi-core (2 total)
    Not hyper-threaded
    It is now fitted (updated ?) with a 120GB SSD and the Memory increased to 4GB
    Basic specs of new Laptop

    Asus Zenbook UX310UA Core i3-6100U 4GB 128GB SSD 13.3 Inch Windows
    Thanks

    Rather than we guess a figure, how about download a benchmark test on each and get the real figures from both?

    Did so before I bought
    Plenty of good reviews on the i5 and i7 versions but could not find one for lowest spec (i3) one, also same with "you tube" reviews
    Took a gamble on buying this one because not much will be asked of it, mostly internet use.
