    I have a laptop, core 2 duo, and 2 gb of ram.

    Looking at these graphs from process explorer (from sysinternals), which one over time, would cause the most damage to my laptop?
    And which one would degrade performance as it's running?

    Vuze seems to use the CPU erratically, whereas uTorrent seems to crank on the HDD.

    PS: I like both clients equally, just asking for the life of my laptop :p

    Same for Ram & Cpu, so does it mean I should just stick with Vuze :p

    If hardware is going to die, it will. You might as well enjoy it.
