My brother took delivery of an i3 HP notebook with Intel's integrated graphics; well maybe not exactly a budget laptop, but it's hard to come by an i3 for less - just over 500. I compared it to my current generation Macbook Pro 13-inch, which I love but have been perpetually irked by Apple's short shrift in the processor department. I chose NFL.com, one of the few sites that is kind of sluggish on my MBP, its virtually invincible compared to my old Powerbook G4. Well, I noticed that the site ran better on my brother's HP, not choppy, and the drop-down menus smoothly did what they were designed to do. I've begun to question others claims that an entry level i3 is not really better than a C2D when it comes to everyday tasks. Perhaps, I should run over to the Apple store and see how NFL.com loads on the 15 and 17-inch Arrandale-equipped machines to rule out the sluggishness is software-related. For what's it's worth, I just popped open the site on Safari and it was little bit peppier. Before, I had conducted the test with Firefox on both machines. It may seem like I'm quibbling over nothing, but this may not bode well for the future, as surely graphic-intensive websites like NFL.com are the future of the internet. Apple needs to get with the times and upgrade the MBP which, in a handful of respects, is inferior to the Airs that are geared towards casual computer users.
