Somebody mentioned 486DX2/66 is remarkably fast for mma calculation.
10000! calculation ended up with just 17.5 second using my 486DX2/66.
 
I was amazed this is faster than SPARC10 result mentioned above!
Natural extrapolation is that PENTIUM is faster than PowerPC regarding
at least 10000! computation. Any feedback about this?
