Really Enjoying My New Laptop

I’ve had my new laptop for several days now and I have to say that it is absolutely amazing how fast the thing is.  I know that it’s been a long time since my 1.67ghz desktop machine was considered to be anything like “fast” but I still did not realize how much faster a computer could be with a 500mhz faster cpu, a second core and an additional gigabyte of memory could make a computer.

I’ve done some trials with making video and this thing is cranking stuff out like it’s on a computer equivalent of a testosterone booster!  It is absolutely going to make life so much easier when it comes to making videos.  In fact, it already has.

Just for grins, I did a side by side comparison.  I made this video deliberately more “involved” than I have in a long time.  Then I rendered it on both my desktop machine and on the new laptop.  The laptop did the job in just a few minutes over one hour.  The desktop took a total of six and a half hours to do the exact same job!

Definitely a major improvement!!
