Out of curiosity, you may want to run the following on the two machines. Needs["Benchmarking`"] BenchmarkReport[] The Third test is a timing calcultion of Pi to 380,000 digits. (See botton of report) Maybe some of the other 15 calculations are faster ?? -- HTH :>) Dana DeLouis Windows XP & Mathematica 6 "peter" <glassymeow at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:fk88qk$501$1 at smc.vnet.net... >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
