Fantastic comparison table.  This is a must for salvagers like me.  (Did you
also teach me German?  I assume "halber" means "half".)

Actually, though, for a machine running 24/7, the power savings made me
more interested in the 1.6V (vs 2.0V) processor than any gain in "speed".
I appreciate your including that in "performance" and pointing that out
to me.
