Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

the speed of cpus in terms of ghz is almost irrelevant these days.

its all about architecture. a core i7 is probably 1000x faster in terms of speed compared to an atom. arom processors arw low powered portable cpus. i7 is top of the range all out speedy speed.

a 3.2ghz core i5 for example is still much faster than an AMD equivalent at say 4ghz.

a formula 1 car has a 1 .6lt engine, it would be a darn sight faster than any run of the mill 2.5lt+ car!!

whats it for?/ whats your budget, lets start from there.
