    This could be fun and informative, just download this free program to calculate pi (windows based only).
    ftp://pi.super-computing.org/windows/super_pi.zip
    Then run the program to measure the time it takes to calculate pi to 2 million digits. Do it both while plugged in and under battery power and post your results along with the notebook model,CPU type & speed, amount of memory and hard drive size & RPM. If we can get 20-30 results(hopefully more) to be statistically significant I'll compile and post the results here in a week or so.

    I'll go 1st.
    IBM R40 (2897GAU) Pentium M 1.5 Ghz, 1GB ram, 60GB 7200rpm
    AC powered 2:29 battery powered (adaptive cpu) 2:30

    My homebuilt desktop P4 2.4 Ghz, 1GB ram, 250GB 7200rpm
    2:53

    Thanks

    i must have been running something else before because now when I took it off ac and on to battery I got 2 min 35 secs I'll run it again on the AC and see what I get there.

    My laptop is too old and knackeered for me to bother - it'd be hours not minutes!

    However, for not windows peeps there are non windows versionds of the tests in the ftp tree.

    I've forwarded this on to a few people and will post their numbers when they get back to me.

    Hi Big Calhoun,
    You might see if there is something running in the background that is slowing things down.
