Please understand this: the power of the CPU is only part of the performance
equation. You should buy a fast hard drive also (this is in rpms). A fast
drive and enough memory for your various apps (generally the more the merrier)
will greatly facilitate the strain on a CPU. So, it's an integrated process.
