Yes the Vaio P70 has a Dual Core CPU (Hyper Threading), and Yes It Sucks with Windows 7 Score!
Last Monday we published our review of Sony’s Vaio P70, a luxury Netbook powered by an ATOM Z520 CPU at 1.33GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 4200rpm 1.8” HDD and an Intel GMA500 video card…
From yesterday we’ve received many emails and comments stating our review was flawed and our unit wasn’t running correctly. We’re human and we make mistakes, but this time we DIDN’T!
YES the ATOM Z520 on the P is Dual Core (hyper threading)… Please check for yourself here below, but unless Vista is completely mistaken it clearly shows two CPUs.
NO our unit was not faulty, the P70 we have has a 2.7 Score on Vista but a 1.9 on Windows 7…
Bottom line… If you want to get the best of your P… there are two solutions:
1) Get the stock version and install XP (we did it and it works better than 7 or Vista).
2) Get the 1.86Ghz and 128GB SSD.
