"I give up"


          

So I think this pc is running fine, Bot. How reliable are these benchmarking tests? I have used 2 of them and both tell me this is a POS. I know it is lower end but really? Gives me a CPU of bottom 2 %. says graphics are horrible. I have a Dell 15 5567. It came with 8 g Ram, I added 4. It came with 256 SSD, I put in a 480 SSS instead. I know the graphics, processor etc are not the best but these sites basically said it is JUNK. I have Nothing running at startup except Windows defender. It is malware free. Starts up in 10 seconds ( thank goodness finally). Can anyone explain this to me??
Thanks

Bottom line is...dual core processors are dogs in todays environment. I have owned many laptops in my day and none of them were worth a crap. The old hour glass spinning. The SSD should make it somewhat faster but it's the processor that makes any computer fast.

HP Envy 750-520,Win 10 Home X64,Intel I7-7700, 8GB DDR4,PC4-19200,Radeon RX 460(2GB GDDR5 Graphics)256GB SSD/1TB Hard Drives

If you're happy with the performance, don't worry about the benchmarks.

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.
