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
