Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take
our lives, but they'll never take our freedom?!
Clock speed is somewhat of a misnomer in actual speed of the computer. What is an accurate measurement is how many bits the processor can crunch per second. A well designed computer has a fast processor and good ALU and Control unit design. However, you could have a system with a 2 gig processor, where certain arithmetic operations take 6 clock cycles. A 1 gig processor may be designed well where the same operation only takes 3 clock cycles. These computers crunch numbers at the same rate. Computer companies play off of consumers ignorance of what speed actually is in a computer.
