Something like this. When I used ARM7V and ARM9V there was a crazy
concept like bogo mips which is the number of cycles the processor cannot
guarentee process anything. What I found was It causes performance hits
when you add Memory/Storage etc. But I am not sure about this. Even
I had raised a thread where I wanted to know about ARM Tablets @talk,
eventually If that can be broadened to an ARM Processor with laptop capability.
Even I am interested in owning a ARM Laptop. But cost might be the other
thing too.
