Seems like having a quad core setup is really beneficial! (Good news for me, but I'm not ready to jump on board yet.)

are you cheating here???

i can´t imagine your t8100 has the ability to play the 8tracks of the test with ableton´s meter showing only 32% (btw my quadcore xeon workstation shows 20% in live playing the 8tracks).

look at my vostro1310, it´s specd with the same cpu as yours:

1) Ableton Live CPU Meter: 50%
2) Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model: Laptop, Dell Vostro 1310
3) Operating System: Win XP Pro 32bit
4) Ableton Live version: Live 8.0.1
5) CPU Make, Model, and Speed: Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile Processor T8100, 2.10GHz
6) Amount of Ram: 4GB
7) Soundcard: Yamaha Go46 *1, Driver version 1.0.0
8.) Hard Disk Drive Speed: 5400 RPM
9) Number of playback tracks? 8 Tracks, buffer setting: 529 samples (the factory driver of the audio interface doesn´t allow a 512 Samples setting)

Could be due to full harddisk, different OS, less RAM. Or just bad luck.
