You’re doing the exact thing you’re complaining about.
I was discussing the subject of the thread. I invite you to do the same.
Sounds good. I haven't used Bunsenlab, will try it if I ever bother to resurrect an oldie. I suspect long term everyday use is a different kettle of fish than just having a quick blast. Like-for-like, it's still going to be noticeably slow next to a modern PC carrying out identical tasks. Where your threshold is, is up to the individual.
For everyday usage I'd spend the $200 for the large speed boost of an old i-class system any day over an old Core2 (as per another user's consensus in this post), but hey I'm not a starving child in Africa.
yeah, using a core2duo daily has absolutely nothing to do with a discussion on using a core2duo daily.
i love your anecdotal breakdown, it's glorious.
If whatever your previous post was, actually meant "My main PC is a Core 2 Duo and I'm fine with it", then cool enjoy.
Thanks, I love you too.
Is this meant to be upside down or have I just suffered a stroke?
It's a mac, you must "think different"
Lol, love it!
I don’t know why it did that, photo is normal way up on the phone but eh didn’t bother rotating it because it’s pretty simple to work out why I posted the image
this new forum software sucks
Every time I try to attach an image using the forum software it states the image is too big! How big does the image have to be?
not as big

4 cubits wide by 3 cubits tall.
I prefer to measure in Q*Bert's, but it is still 4*3. The classic retro ratio.
A discrete graphics card makes a lot of difference. Also DDR3 boards.
So it's in a state of superposition until observed? I'm starting to understand the confusion here.
Back in the day, DDR3 was an awful lot of cost which delivered bugger all real-world difference to the FSB limited Core2's. I'm not sure if ramping the speed would have significant effect, but it should be a doddle to jam 16gb in these days. 16gb of Intel desktop DDR2 ram is rather more difficult.
I'm playing the campaign of Starcraft 2 (first RTS I've ever really given a go and pushed through the initial "I suck, this isn't fun" phase) on a Phenom 2 X4 945, and it runs well on Linux. So if your C2Q is a bit laggy, there's a good upgrade path:
I don't find C2Q's to be bottlenecks, if anything, it's having enough RAM
System is up and running. Just waiting for the gpu bought in forums to arrive.
Even with 4gb ram and on board graphics it still works quite well as a web surfer and YouTube machine.
I have run it next to my ryzen 1700 system (see sig) and it really is not that much slower for these tasks.
