Real-World System Productivity

 

SysMark 2002

 

Sysmark2002 incorporates the following Internet Content Creation and Office Productivity applications:

 

Office Productivity: Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Excel 2002, Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, Microsoft Outlook 2002, Microsoft Access 2002, Netscape Communicator 6.0, Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred v.5, WinZip 8.0, and McAfee Virus Scan 5.13.

 

Internet Content Creation: Adobe Photoshop 6.01, Adobe Premiere 6.0, Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 7.1, Macromedia Dreamweaver 4, and Macromedia Flash 5.

 

 

 

We see that the slower RPM's of the ECS I-Buddie 4's hard disk play an important part in its slower performance. Since the Desktop PC is using the same memory CPU and video card we can assume that the hard disk limits the I-Buddie 4 from its full potential.
