I am a lucky guy. I get a new laptop every year from work. I have worked at this school for 4 years, and i have had 4 different laptops.
When we get a new shipment of laptops i try to get the new laptops out to the teachers and swap their older laptops and use them as student laptops.
But i am the first one to get one of the new laptops. I am the tech-supporter after all. So that's a perk i have.
Anyway. This time the upgrade isn't very huge. It's just going from the Dell Latitude E5550 to the E5570.
But still, that did result in a better benchmark score. So here it is:
You got me, I can't get 5GHz stable enough. If I manage to get into Windows it thermal throttles, if I bump up the voltage I get over voltage warnings from my motherboard, not willing to take the risk.
