Benchmarking 2nd Try: HP tx2051 vs tx2525

As you know, about a week ago I did some benchmarking on the two HP units I have, the tx2051 and the tx2525.  The benchmarking results were a little weird and a few people in the comments suggested a run after a default factory install.  So, after 2 clean(not clean, but ‘factory defaults’) installs I ran the tests again…  This time they are a little hard to look at again!  I’m not too sure what to make of the results but note the differences.  The tx2051, the winner (yes, the old one), has a faster processor and 1 additional gig of memory.  The tx2525 has a better graphics card and those results can been seen in the test results.  I didn’t do a process by process comparison, but the installs appeared to be relatively close in processes and base programs installs.  Both systems were taken through the full Windows Update process as well as the HP software updates.  Any other questions shoot them off.  It’s Saturday afternoon and up next is a Battery Eater test!  Click the read more for the specs and images of the benchmarking results.
