8461Re: OT: A laptop for panos. Intel Core, duo core, core 2 duo..???
- Apr 2, 2007On my new notebook (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 1536, Intel Core 2 Duo
T5500 1.66 GHz, 1 GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 128 MB) the
panorama images load (with Deval) a little faster than on my old
desktop (AMD Barton 2500+, 1 GB RAM, ATI RADEON 9200 SE AGP 128 MB).
When I work with PTGui the notebook is slower than the desktop. 3
PTGui projects take about 45 min on AMD and ~52 min on Intel. About
the advantages of having a dual core when working on PTGui stitch the
internet browser open with similar speed (better say similar lack of
good speed). Do not forget the disadvantages of a TFT screen. The
black will probably never be black and with all the notebooks that I
had so far all of them had problem with the yellow (not enough, very
hard to adjust).
