What Processor is in Your System?

August 27, 2009

Today I have three short questions I’d like to ask you. If you could please leave a comment with your answers, that would be great. I’d prefer that you not e-mail me your answers because I would like for everyone to be able to see the results. The developers at Corel are very curious about this, so please take the time to answer if at all possible.

  1. What version of CorelDRAW do you currently use the most?
  2. What processor is in your computer(s)? Go to Control Panel | System. If you regularly use CorelDRAW on more than one system, please list what each of them contain.
  3. Do you plan on upgrading the machine(s) on which you use CorelDRAW? If so, when?

I’ll start out with my answers. I use CorelDRAW X4 the most on both my desktop and laptop. The desktop (as you can see above) has an Intel Corel 2 6600 CPU running at 2.40 GHz and my laptop has an Intel Corel 2 T7400 CPU running at 2.16 GHz. I’ll also throw out that I use XP on the desktop and Vista on the laptop. I plan to upgrade the desktop in the next 2-3 months and the new machine will run Windows 7. I don’t have a timetable for updating the laptop though it will probably be in the next 6 months, at most a year.

OK, your turn! Thanks in advance for your participation!!!

    1.) Corel X3. I almost took advantage of the X4 special pricing on 8/26/09 but I needed to buy DreamWeaver CS4 more.

    2.) Falcon NW Talon Intel Core2 Duo 3.00GZHz. 2.5 GB of RAM.

    3.) Based on Foster’s analysis of Patriot Torqx Solid State Hard Drives I will probably upgrade my primary “C” drive to the SSD and upgrade to Windows 7 all at once since I’ll have to reinstall all my programs which takes days to accomplish.
