Ay, my laptop specs are about the same  ;)
Did you recently upgrade your laptop?

If you mean your T4400, I use the same laptop and it's way slower then a i3.

hmm... that is good to know, apparently the impact of more GHz in not liner.

No it isn't.  It relies a great deal on cache size and instruction set and some behind-the-scenes microcode optimizations.

If you want to compare speed of processors, try this: CPU benchmark results.

Ghz in a computer is similar to the max RPM in a car. It doesn't say much about the actual power you can get from the engine.

CPU: i5 3570k (stock)
GPU: Radeon HD 7850 (somtimes I overclock it)
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 1333

I will probably have upgraded some or all of this in 2-3 years. The first to go will be the GPU, I think.

I think my Nokia Lumina 2520 (Did not buy it yet, just considering) Should be able to handle next gen. graphics games. (Right?)
So really, I have no advantage to owning a bad ass tower unless I am running something as resource intensive as DB3. Correct?

I don't think so, if you mean with next gen the next gen consoles. There's still a considerable speed difference between smartphones/tablets and 'real' computers.

Needing a bad ass tower really depends on what you're planning to do with it. If you don't think "damn this computer is slow" and it can still handle everything you throw at it, no need for a new one.

Actually by "next gen graphics" I was thinking somewhat like 'Space Engine.' And on the optimistic side 'Skyrim.'

I would be surprised if it could handle Skyrim, honestly.  Tablet CPUs are reasonably beefy, but proper  GPUs are harder to cram in to the form factor of something like a tablet and the first thing that gets cut in order to hit good power consumption levels.

Damn, Now I actually want to try it. Better dig up my hack CD somewhere. I kinda shoved it away after realizing my frame rate on current hardware was 1 fps.  :D

Hmm.. Would be fun to try out 32 instances with my 32 core, 128 GB RAM server :)
