A friend just reminded me that his new Nexus 7 has 100,000 times the
processing power of his old VIC-20 (which, admittedly, is older than
20 years)... and the VIC-20 cost 50% more than the Nexus, even without
allowing for inflation.  One second of processing on the Nexus would
take 1.2 days on the VIC-20.
