I am thinking about purchasing a Power Mac 6500/250/4gig/32 ram/33.6!  Anyway, I looked at the benchmark scores of this computer and its disk seems really slow compared to other computers.  How important is disk speed vs clock speed?  I currently own a Perf6300 and Softwindows runs slooooow!  Is this due to a slow HD or 100mhz 603e or a combination of both.  Thanks in advance!

Clock speed is top dog, however if youve got a crappy old drive with a slow access time it won't help, however with new drives like your 6300 it shouldn'y be a prob with an access time of around 12 milli seconds, The machine your considering purchasing is nice. Your clock speed is superlative, I would however partion down the hard drive so you optimise performance.. Also Soft Windows is a dog, whatever you run it on, It does the job but slowly, to get the most out of it, Upgrade to Soft Windows '95, then buy a bit more Ram as it's cheap and run it from a RAm disk and it should clank along okay. As it stands, you can expect a 486 DX2 66 speed at the moment

Happy hunting
