How powerful is a Core 2 duo 7300 laptop processor


I am thinking of getting a laptop : it would be with an Intel Core 2 duo 7300 processor and 2 GB of ram.

I am currently working on a AMD 64 4000+ desktop, and I would like to know if I will get more power on the laptop.

How many instance of plugs can it support simultaneously with this kind of processor ? ? ?

I would love to hear your comments and experience.

theres no perfect answer to your question of how many plug ins. seriously.
cos it depends how much pc resources each plug in uses.
some plug ins that i use are not resource hogs.
but other people use plug ins that can severly tax a system.
particularly with lots of instances.
thus u wont get a definitive or perfect answer on this.
thus the best solution is for you to run tests on the laptop u choose before purchasing the laptop useing your projects and plug ins.
this will give u the ability to assess properly.
i dont want to push reaper on you, butone reason i like it is it will give u an indication of resource useage of plug ins.
so u can see which plug ins are consuming lots of resources.
(demo at
good luck.

Could someone told me what would be the core 2 duo 7300 equivalent, in a desktop with an AMD processor ? ?
I went to the computer shop and the seller told me, it should be like an AMD 4000 X2 power.

I was surprised and thought it would have been more powerful.

Would a core 2 duo 7500 bring me to another upper level ? I mean, Is there a lot of power difference between a 7300 and a 7500 , or just minor improvment ? ? .

Can you please give me an example of the amount of plugs you can run on a big session ? ?

Thanks a lot
