    I'm wondering I've read online that notebooks dnt have as much processing power under thier hoods compared to laptops but I've been on qvc website looking at thier selection and I see notebooks with quad core or i3 processors and 4 mb of ram... I'm looking to run software s like senuke, bot, face dominator, scrape box ect. If the specs seem on par with laptops why r they considered considerably weaker? Anyone wanna take a shot at answering this? Does anyone use notebooks to run seo tools or is not a good idea? Thx!

    4gb of ram...

    Notebooks are smaller by nature, and there processing power wasn't where it could be to make the price point attractive to consumers. Pretty sure it is as simple as supply and demand, having ample supply and availability of lower cost parts they might be comparable to lower spec'd laptops now.

    The bottle neck would still likely be with your network bandwidth, especially if you're thinking you'll be running multiple programs at once or using the internet for VOIP\cable\streaming on top of that.

    Laptops are nof ror seo tools. Only desktop PC. Laptops die faster than desktop PC's so laptops are not for running seo tools 24 hurs a day.

    If you want to run the good tools efficiently go for an Intel i7 Processor w/ at least 6GB of ram, especially if you plan on running tools along side one another. I've got two laptops and the i3 is really too slow to run more than 1 app aggressively. My i7 laptop w/ solid state drive runs SEO tools much faster and smoother operation.

    My only issue is that the Sony Vaios overheat like a mofo. Although it doesn't seem to effect performance the fan sounds like a jet engine and the bottom of the laptop temperature is hot to the point where I'm concerned of a fire risk, LOL (yes, I'm going to take it into the shop). If you Google around you'll see Vaios historically have bad overheating problems. So maybe just go w/ a different brand. My brother also had the same issue and had to have Sony send him a new laptop all together.

    For regular use, I used a decked out PC. Laptop just can't keep up. haha

    If you were going to buy a good i7 quad core notebook\laptop, you'd be insane to use it strictly for SEO tools. You'd be better of buying a custom desktop rig, spending less and overclocking it on top of that with more longevity than a laptop used solely for SEO or weren't going to use it for it's primary purpose, being mobile.

    Do you mean 4gb? If so I think that's okay. But since you'll be running multiple programs at once, you would need more processing power. I would go for a laptop
