  1. 2011 Macbook Pro :) Verified NovaBench Score: 1063Test run on February 4, 2015Mac OS X 10.10.2 Intel Core i7 running at 2400 MHzIntel HD Graphics 3000 GPU16384 MB System RAM (Score: 216)- RAM Speed: 7730 MB/sCPU Tests (Score: 615)- Floating Point Operations/Second: 223291088- Integer Operations/Second: 501693440- MD5 Hashes Generated/Second: 1000318Graphics Tests (Score: 182)- 3D Frames Per Second: 588Hardware Tests (Score: 50)- Primary Partition Capacity: 442 GB- Drive Write Speed: 226 MB/s
  2. My laptop was running other programs so the score is probably marginally higher and the laptop is from 2011. That said, Ram helps marginally. 16gb vs your 8gb. Mine is a quad core i7 chip so yours should be running faster given mine is 4 yrs old now.Graphics in yours is much better For hardware I use a Samsung 500gb SSD hard drive and is SOOO worth the upgrade. You will NEVER go back after a SSD drive.

  3. How to increase your score. Below is my score and I was running a few programs while it ran as well that might make it marginally higher. My Macbook pro is from late 2011 (bot in 2012) but I have upgraded the memory to 16GB, moved to a 500gb SSD hard drive, and I do regular maintenance on the system to delete old programs and monitor the disk operations as well (Checkmate). Your systems run slow because the hard drive or ram is not up to date with current technology. That happens the second you buy the computer, like buying a car. I also have a quad core processor which helps a lot too. But to the admin's point. Does it do what you need it to do? If so, then don't worry about it.
