Recently I bought a used Thinkpad W520 model:4284cv4 from Ebay.
What the problem I am encountering is about the low performance this W520 laptop performs. I have also the X200 on hands, it looks like the performance is even better with SSD for both laptops.
I am disappointed because I suppose this is the best laptop in the world with the best keyboard.
You can see that the WEI score for processor is very very low, 4.9 only.
It's unbelievable anyway. It should be above 7 or more!!!
I also check the ways to optimize the WEI score on this forum but it doesn't give a help for my laptop.
I found that the CPU loading is very easy to raise up to almost 100%.
Can anymore one here to do a favour for me in the last day of 2014????

I had the same experience with my W510. Please refer to the follow threads:
There is somethign particular to the WEI analysis that it does not enable TurboBoost or SpeedStep technologies available to the processor; at least not in my case. I monitored the processor during the WEI analysis and the processor clock was supressed to it's minimum 930MHz core speed (native 1.6GHz, and 2.8GHz TurboBoost) on all four cores for all tests.
My solution was to clear all the prior analysis (see the Microsoft link), and to then install and run Throttlestop before starting a fresh WEI analysis. This prevents WEI from throttleing back the processor. I went from a processor index score of 4.8 to 6.9.
Once I was done the analysis, I uninstalled Throttlestop -- or simply quit using it. I had run other analysis to demonstrate in day to day use, the system and applications were accessing the processor technologies, and everything was working as it was supposed too.
