Dell Vostro Why I Chose The Bigger Model – The Big Fan!
I bought a second hand Dell Vostro 200 I actually now have both versions, thanks to a deal I got at the weekend. One is the stand up spacey type, the other is the smaller tower that can sit horizontally but is really an upright tower. Both are dual core. The only main difference between the two is the processor. One is Pentium dual-core and one is Duo core. Reading up on the difference between the two, the clocks peed would be the main determinator or difference in speed. The mini Dell Vostro 200 with Core Duo would have a slightly faster clock speed. The other noticeable difference was the fan. I felt that the smaller computer had to work harder to work faster and to keep cool.
Which Desktop Did I Choose? The Dell Vostro 200 Full-Size Desktop Was The Best
I decided to keep my old oversized/full-sized desktop tower, it has a tremendous fan on it but compared to the other one it’s quieter. That’s really important. In a small room/home office or office cubical, you will get a real joy from a nice bit of breeze and no burning smells. I always think it makes sense to buy a larger tower, whatever the use. And there are ways to optimize the computer so there is less of a strain. Coolness comes above nao seconds in my opinion, the unit will last longer. (Dual core does more work than the non-dual core. It can be turned off, but it can cause mayhem, particularly in Laptops and for certain software environments. That’s why it’s so important to keep the PC cool.)
Energy Saving Desktop PC Lenovo Untested As Yet (Lost Cable)
The only one I have yet to test is the Lenovo which has a low power consumption. I will presume it runs as silent and I will wonder though, how good it will be at powering and running lots of peripherals.
Music Making Using Dell Vostro 200
Obviously, none of my desktops is ideal for running Music Creation Workstation, but they will make a humble beginning. They have the minimum requirements dual-core and 2.gigahertz 64 bit and Windows 10 was another specification for most software and hardware. Both are 64 bit. That is entry level and good enough for now. XP still does a lot for Musicians eg XP Pro 64 bit. But I advise for future compatibility to invest in a Windows 10 PC, though it’s entirely up to you! You should certainly go for the larger models or they won’t stand the heat.
Staying cool in this amazing Summer Heat/Heatwave 2019! I will be using my Dell from today and staying absolutely cool…
I’ve nabbed the Windows 10 drive from the other Dell. I put the Windows 7 in the smaller one and that is ready to sell. Maybe I will keep the Lenovo for another time and see how much energy it can save me.
My advice, go for a larger desktop. And don’t be fooled by cheap gimmicks!
I’ve loved computers since 1999 and they love me back when I’m good to them. So please heed my advise above!
