The skill level for this tutorial is, novice and suitable for all nOObs  ;).  The delay for this tutorial before the touchpad is re-enabled is set for 2.5 seconds

AndyInMokum, this a great idea,  Thank you.  I've already bookmarked this page, and I'm going to do this.  I suspect I'm touching the pad, but I never notice myself doing it.

It's tough going from a 17.3 inch computer screen to a 14 inch.  Doesn't sound like much of a difference, but the difference is huge.  Funny how Crunchbang saved my day last night.  I think I might have to reevaluate my thesis of Ubuntu's Unity being Linux' flagship DE.  I got at least a dozen internal error messages trying to install the darn thing!  :(

Thank you,

perknh

Shhhh, careful of using the "U" word.  You know it'll only set him off  ;D!!

You're right, of course.  We have difficulty with the U word over here, and they have difficulty with the P work over there at the U forum.  (I learned that from firsthand experience!)

And to cap all of this off, I never could find, or get Wi-Fi to work at all on that new computer I just bought.  What a fool's errand  I have been on the last couple of days.   ::)

I thank everybody for their time, energy, and patience with me on this project.  I do not want, nor will I have, a tiny Ethernet-only Windows 8 computer.

Hi perknh, Try entering this code to put a delay on your touchpad while you are typing:
Code: [Select]
syndaemon -i 2.5 -d

Hello AndyInMokum,

I returned that Dell Inspiron because I couldn't figure out how to connect it to Wi-Fi.

So at least for the time being the problem is solved!  ;D

Thank you,

perknh

I realize that this topic is old. If anyone has gotten this far and would like to research intel cpu's,chipsets,etc. try this website.   http://ark.intel.com/
A little knowledge is dangerous, I'm proof of it.

Hello Ralph,
 
I did end up with a Chromebook with an Intel Celeron processor 2955U and with 4 GB DDR3 Low Voltage Memory too.  In other words, in the world of Chromebooks, I scored! (Or maybe my it's my wife who scored because I no longer put my own hands much on this particular Chromebook anymore! ;D)

But, Ralph, the link you provided today will most certainly help somebody down the line one day.

So, thank you.  ;)

I know this thread has been solved but I wanted to provide my thoughts.

I compare systems of the same generation and always check the release date of the processor.

In short I think of it as Celeron < i3 < i5 < i7 of the same generation. (new features on an i3 may trump previous generations of i7s in some cases. )

For laptops I weigh more than just the processor. Build quality plays a big part and I compare all components right down to the hard drive.

Desktops are interesting too as I've built my own Sandy Bridge i5 2500k back in 2011 and it still runs faster than my 2014 Dell i7 at work. (mostly because of the slow hard drive)

Intel tends to release i5 and i7 processors at the beginning of a generation and the next quarter offer Celeron, Pentium, i3 and even more i5 and i7 options. Often these may increase cache or lower power requirements or even better on board graphics.

In short I don't buy any computer with a CPU released by Intel more than 12 months ago unless it's a really good deal or I'm looking for that specific cpu.
