The numbers for the combination of all 6 factors makes no sense to me. I'd like to know what algorithm they used to get the 7.3 for the i3, because (at least to me) it makes sense to just average all 6 scores, & that'd be my score for the product. But when you average all 6 of the i3's scores, it comes to about 6.63, not 7.4. And I STILL don't understand, when they score the Celeron 847 at just 0.1 higher than the i3, why they conclude that the i3 is still better than the Celeron. I did read the article, & the hyperthreading is definitely a plus & a good reason as to why the i3 outperforms the Celeron; but the scoring system I think is a bit screwed up, LOL. And when showing a detailed stats comparison, I just wanna' point out that the overclock speed shows as the same as the base clock speed. Unless these processors don't have overclock ability, typically overclock speeds are higher than base clock speeds, LOL. Just sayin'.
I'm definitely going up a notch higher with an i5, the rating isn't worth it in shelling out 330 bucks
I have a Celeron 847 on my computer and want to put an i3 processor has way???
