    A good article indeed - the points are still quite valid!

    Just how fast do you want it?? -- I am on a 450Mhz AMD and unless i have many things running,my ram is used up,etc its plenty fast for me!!

    I dont see the desire for faster and faster stuff,does anyone else?

    Tinyurl is the answer for posting long urls!!!

    If all you use your computer for is surfing the web and sending emails then that specification is fine.

    however alot of people have multimedia machines now which is the reason why.

    alot of people do work on that require specific deadline times, so they can't really use machines where you turn it on go make a cup of tea, drink it and find ur still in POST.

    my old 20mb 233 was like that.

    Its kind of a combination of everything.
    people want to see better games, nicer looking webpages be able to download songs, music, audio faster. Also alot of people get very annoyed when something doesnt click-work instead of click...-click...-click...-click-work.

    I would be happy with a 2.0 ghz p4 with 1 gb ram if websites games and even ms office(which i dont have) didnt need retardedly high processing power because its designed badly.

    Its really a nice article about CPU speed. Intel makes really efficient processors which do a lot help in doing multimedia work and advanced computing.

    Its a good point, I do a lot of 3d rendering but not enough to justify a render farm. Rendering is slow and its time that could be spent modeling so time is money.

    I do a lot of multimedia work myself, Photoshop and video editing and the like. Those programs are a little meaty, so I need a faster computer, but it's still not "top of the line".

    To be up to date, you need the latest version of office. To use the latest version of office (and have a good experience), you need at least a decent computer..

    Desktop speed has reached to a point where most users will be satisfied with. The race now is on mobile processors.

    But recently I had the need of a 8GB and fast desktop processor to run some number crunching programs, and I did not want to wait over night to see the results.
