Improve it :-)

I'm not a hardware expert and don't have any detailed knowledge of the
conroe technology.  In general, faster chips lead to faster
computations.  The notion of "performance in Bioconductor" is not all
that meaningful; it really depends on what computations you are
interested in.

Hope that helps some,
