Why do we need a faster Iyonix? What software is there that will take advantage of the extra speed? It is true that a faster processor might encourage the development of a media player for Iyonix (which probably can't happen because of licencing issues anyway), and Firefox would perhaps run a bit better, but apart from that, I can't think of anything I use that would benefit much from slightly more speed. I do a fair bit of digital photography, and faster display of JPEGS would be nice, but the main thing that that needs is a faster graphics card. I think the next jump in processor speed needs to be a big one, up to something like 2GHz or more, and accompanied by applications that use the extra power to make upgrading worthwhile.
