(Maker of Norton Utility) has a small utility callsi.comIt's short for Norton Speed Index.This is a nice utility that is just ONE single executable file and check the processor performance of the processor.Real simple!Short and sweet.I would like to ask all the professional out here....is there any share shareware out there that is a single file and able to do a quick PROCESSOR ONLY performance rating.I'm not looking something that take 1/2 hour to load.Just a quick number so I can see is it worth my time working on the unit. ===My option 2 is to boot from my USB boot-able Ubuntu OS and find an UNIX shareware to check the speed index of the processor.Please help!\015
