I am a little surprised it hasn't come up on lists.

I still stick to Intel, and I would not get the latest "best" thing,
get a P4! How fast, depends on your software; but my new-ish P4 2.4
really flies!

Most people whose computers I hear about do have more powerful ones
than mine (speech software requires a fair amount of power); and they
tend to have at least 1g of ram (512 is OK for me).  If you use an
elephant like Paint Shop Pro, you probably do need something a but
faster than my "old" one (P3 650).

People are going on about the Athlon 64 bit.  I don't know...
