Windows Vista (WEI)

Windows Vista itself does not count as a benchmark, but the built-in performance tool gives a rating that Microsoft will use in the future to rate games and perhaps other software. It tests the complete system and gives categories such as memory, hard disk, and CPU scores. The lowest score will be the WEI index score total.
The score looks good except for one part and that is gaming graphics. We saw earlier that the notebook does not score high in the graphics tests and this does not prove to be the exception.
However, you can see the second graphics category score is high, this means that on the desktop with Aero glass enabled, the system is performing well. The fast spinning 7,200-rpm hard disk scores very well in this test, as well.
