What makes processors different from each other is how efficient they perform calculations or, in probably more familiar terms, the speed of the computer, measured in gigahertz (GHz) and how many processing cores are embedded on the chip.
First, the new console utilizes a "Cell" processor, which can simultaneously run multiple tasks at 3.2 GHz, allowing the console to display finer detailed graphics (ideal for an HDTV) and greatly improve gameplay performance.
For the average computer user, a 250-500 GB hard drive with a dual-core processor at around 2 GHz, with 2 GB of RAM will run most software as long as you are not engaging in high end game play, with memory and power to spare.
But if you want to ensure a lag-free experience in low settings, be sure to have at least a 2.0 Ghz CPU, 512 MB of RAM (minimum bandwith of PC3200), and a 128MB graphics card that supports the latest version of DirectX.
Don't worry about the GHz speed because if you stick with Dual-cores and Core 2s/X2s for basic and medium-powered computers and Quad-cores for gaming and heavy use, you'll be fine.
In addition to the the normal corded controller, you can also get a 2.4 Ghz wireless controller that allows you up to a 30 foot range and four controllers per unit.
Consumers in rural areas should either select a 2.4 Ghz or 5.8 Ghz phone because rarely will you need to worry about interference or someone listening to your call.
It features a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 160 GB hard drive, 1 GB of RAM (2 GB maximum), and sports a bright 10.1-inch widescreen.
Contrary to popular belief, just because a phone operates at a larger frequency (like 5.8 Ghz) does not mean you have a larger range.
Their main advantage is less susceptibility to RF interference because there are fewer products currently using the 5.8 GHz band.
