RE: Intel(r) CoreT2 Duo Processors"

Only my opinion here, but discs are always the slowest part of the system as
a general rule. The Dell Inspiron 2200 I'm writing this on is slower than
the Vaio my Dad uses even though the Vaio has a slower processor. He's got a
SATA hard drive in that little laptop. My Dell is only a ATA100 5400RPM

You've got to get it off the disc before anything else can happen...

By what method did you determine this? I'd like to run some similar tests.
