You are correct, but imagine that 1Ghz PIII running an OS that does not use half the computer to run itself. Besides, if you do not upgrade the memory "type", you gain very little. I have 2 laptops one is a 450Mhz K6-II and the other is a 500 Mhz K6-II. The 450 Mhz machine is 48% faster than the 500 Mhz machine with the same OS running the same programs. In fact it's only 3% faster than my 233 Mhz K6-II desktop. The 500 Mhz machine has a 66Mhz bus and the 450 Mhz machine has a 100 Mhz bus.My research has proven to me that any processor speed above 3x the bus speed yields very little performance improvement.
