ECS Excel G550 Mobile Pentium 4 Notebook Review - Benchmarks - System and Multimedia Productivity

By: Cameron Johnson | Standard Laptops in Laptops | Posted: Jun 26, 2003 4:00 am

Real World System and Multimedia 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.




Business productivity on all three systems is equal across the board. ICC wise, the Excel looses to the desktop counterpart but is able to score higher than the ECS Desknote.


Lame MP3 Encoding


Lame MP3 Encoder is used to convert a 120MB WAV file into a 128-bit 44Hz MP3 file. The lower the score the better.



MP3 Encoding wise, the I-Buddie and Excel G550 score equally to each other.


Media Concept DIVX Encoding


Media Concept is used to convert a 1.2GB Digital Video to a MPEP-2 file using 25fps as the default rate. The Benchmark is expressed in time in seconds; of course less is better.



DIVX encoding favors the Excel G550 over the I-Buddie.
