Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the wpa handshake and i am using aircrack-ng to get the password using my dictionary file. I am running aircrack on both my desktop and a laptop both core i5 to just compare the speed of of k/s when cracking. The laptop is 2.53ghz and desktop is 3.4ghz. The laptop has 4gb ddr3 ram and the desktop has 6gb ddr3. aircrack-ng on the laptop only runs at 470k/s and the desktop 4000 k/s. The question is i dont get how not even 1ghz more on the desktop can make is run so so much faster. What am i missing?
I asked this question before but not as many details and someone said "Compare the Wlan cards of the two machines and try also to find out how they're interfaced with the motherboard. There might also be limits related to ram if that differs in any specific way as ram sets the limit of how large the transfer buffer can be."
I dont see how the wireless card has to do with anything since i already have the handshake and i am just using aircrack to get the password, so everything would be running locally on my computer. Nothing running over the wlan.
Also in aircrack the "keys tested" i am assuming 1 key equals 1 word in the dictionary file?
I am taking security classes and I am trying this on my own wireless router.
