This chapter examines Windows 7’s on-board monitoring tools and shows you how to utilize them in day-to-day situations.
The Windows Experience Index (WEI) was first introduced in Vista. It returns largely unchanged in Windows 7 (see Figure 11.1) save for a few subtle refinements. The purpose of the WEI is to measure the capability of your computer’s hardware and software configuration. After testing it out, the WEI expresses this measurement as a Base score number. The higher the base score, the better.
