I come across one doubt

Someone telling me assuming you had a 4 processor machine. Obviously this is about computer only but where can I ask this question like what is processor or are they coming built in laptops etc..

Thank you

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


I suppose the problem here is that a minimal amount of research would tell you the answer, whether it's in terms of sockets, physical processors, physical cores or logical cores.

It's not really going to be well received and is likely to be voted down in it's current form. You're better off looking at system documentation, wikipedia and Google first and if your answer isn't found there, then maybe ask a question.

  • Literally I do not have time to google. I thought stack exchange would be a good option to get doubts clear. Moreover I have got few more doubts like processors related to i4 or i5 or 4ghz or 5ghz. So it doesn't seem invalid question. Ultimately I need to know Where to ask this my question but you ended up telling something else. Thank you – r15 Feb 4 at 11:05

    There's literally no difference between asking a question in a Google text box and here. Actually Google is faster. There's no such thing as an i4 thought.... – Journeyman Geek Feb 4 at 11:06
  • I'd have to agree with Journeyman Geek here - this type of question is faster on Google than SE. It really is the minimum level of research. SE is more useful when you have tried google and others but they don't hold the info you need, or it requires multiple searches, analysis, correlation etc – Rory Alsop Feb 4 at 11:09
  • @JourneymanGeek - Anyway! Thank you for giving answer what you wanted to give. Yeah there is no i4 :) – r15 Feb 4 at 11:10
  • 5 Ghz and 4 GHz i5's don't exist either. – Ramhound Feb 4 at 12:25

    @Arvindraja The general rule is “if you don’t have time to google, you certainly don’t have time to ask on SE”. This is because background googling is a prerequisite needed before you ask any question on any site in SE. you should never use SE as a substitute for googling. – Dan Bron Feb 4 at 12:53
  • @DanBron - Thank you for your input. :) – r15 Feb 4 at 13:15
