So a used computer at a store I work at came in and its the HI_REZ! 1600x1050! :eek: I wanted one so bad when I got mine and I'm thinging about trading mine fore it but I don't want to trade for a computer that just happenes to be binned slower.

This is my computer http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/view/2540380

and these are what I ran on the traded in comp, is my extra ram (which I will swap) making my computer faster? I know these scores are like withing 1% of each other just want to make sure.

1% difference in the scores would be a score difference of about 120. The actual difference is 11 points...which amounts to 0.1% difference. This is called test variation.:)

Run the test 3x on each computer...and you will see that the test scores will vary within the same computer being tested.

Thats what i figured, so if anything the other ones fastest/just as fast with out the extra ram.

I would love to find a 2.7 hi-rez but don't think i ever will

From the benchmark testing perspective...8gig or 16gig of ram does not seem to be making a difference. But...the 16gig could certainly come in handy in other situations.:)
