    Phoronix: Six-Way Ubuntu Linux Laptop Benchmarks

    The latest open-source Linux benchmarks out of Phoronix is a six-way Linux laptop performance comparison featuring laptops/ultrabooks from Lenovo, Hewlett-Packard, ASUS, and Apple...

    The main benchmark notebook is the battery time.
    And not with synthetic benchmarks.
    maybe on browsing (without flash please) or something like...

      I think it's about time you differentiate quad core and dual core+hyperthreading (both say "4 cores"). Intel CPU names are also so hard to interpret...

        For compatibility reasons it's always been rendered in system tables as number of logical cores.

          Chromebook?

          I'd love to see Michael's new Acer Haswell Chromebook added!

            As said in the article, the Acer C720 review with these laptop results + more will be published later in the month... The Chromebook isn't even arriving until tomorrow.

              I agree, this was not a laptop benchmark, it was a rather tame mobile cpu/gpu benchmark.

                I am the only one who enjoys seeing 4-6 year old Thinkpads beat the crap out of the competition?

                  If any of you have a nice simulation script for doing browser use, etc, feel free to submit it to OpenBenchmarking.org. PTS already takes care of the power monitoring and other tasks.

                      This is an interesting point. I too would like to see this distinction made.

                      One problem, though -- I have no real idea what difference it really makes, whether one has two physical cores self-partitioning to act as four virtual cores, or has four actual, separate, physical cores (and I'm not sure I even got that description right, but I think that's what hyper-threading essentially does?).

                      If anyone would care to recommend a good, moderately technical summary or overview, it would be appreciated.
