Hi Folks – I am trying to identify a good desktop primarily for use doing statistical computing with the R language. Not sure if I should be posting here or in custom builds or somewhere else. I have some very large files (Census & BLS stuff, mainly – as much as 14 gig in a file) and R likes to hold what it is working on in RAM, so I need to max out the RAM – I am thinking 16 gig to start, but with the expansion slots to go up to 64 if that proves to be necessary …

I am planning to buy a new laptop within a budget of 700 $. I am going to use it for mainly programming purposes so I don't really care for graphic card etc. I am looking for the following features:- i5 processor 200 GB + HD 4GB + RAM I am not really concerned with the other features. Also would these specifications suffice for programming purposes ? Are these specifications too much for my purpose? Would you advise purchasing a Toshiba /Dell/HP laptop? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

With the [url=http://www.daniweb.com/news/story251088.html]release yesterday[/url] of Intel's Core series of high-performance, power-efficient processors, makers of space-constrained, mobile and other embedded devices now have a new low-cost option for their designs. The multi-core CPUs, dubbed Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7, incorporate Intel's Hyper Threading technology for fast program execution, a DDR3 memory controller and high definition graphics processor. About 200 embedded designs based on the new parts are reportedly available or soon will be. "These processors will enable more powerful high performance computers in the embedded space," said Eric Heikkila, director of embedded hardware and systems at VDC Research Group. …

Intel tomorrow will officially unveil a pair of dual-core mobile processors with its [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper_threading]Hyper threading[/url] technology, adding to its x86 line a low cost chip with performance akin to that of the company's i7, Pentium 4 and Xeon parts. The Core i3 and Core i5 processors, [url=http://www.techshout.com/laptops/2010/05/leaked-hp-laptop-and-desktop-portfolio-for-ces-2010/]demonstrated by Hewlett-Packard[/url] and others at [url=http://www.cesweb.org/]CES 2010 in Las Vegas[/url] through Sunday, also incorporate graphics functions on board, saving power and cost by eliminating the need for a separate graphics package. In a [url=http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/review/1567177/intel-core-i5-661-part-cpu]benchmark report[/url] published yesterday, the two-core i5 661 processor outperformed a quad-core Athlon II 640 running at 3GHz.With on-board graphics …
