Working in Microsoft Office®
In our dedicated Office 2013 test, we measured how long it takes to insert photos or animations into PowerPoint® and do complex calculations in Excel®.
Sony Vaio 2011: This 4 year old laptop saw an uplift in performance of 36% - jumping from 591 to 801 points in our Office 2013 tests. Particularly larger office documents, such as PowerPoint presentations and Excel spreadsheets, were opened and handled a lot faster.
HP Spectre x360: All basic tasks in Office took noticeably longer to complete when programs were slowing down the Ultrabook. However, after the tuning steps were done, performance jumped by 36%.
