i wish to see other people results in running the code:
  Timing[N[Pi,1000000]]
  i am using mathematica 6 ,windowsXp
  i have tried the code on two machines:
  1- celeron 2.6GHZ-256kb cash, memory DDR-512MB-400Mhz
  the timing result is  4.281 seconds
  2- pentium D-925 dual processor 3GHZ-4MB cash , memory DDR2-2GB-667Mhz
  the timing is 3.218 seconds
  i am astonished that there is not much difference between the two values, even the second machine are speedier in cpu frequency and have more cash and the memory frequency.
  thanks for all
  peter
