Supercomputer at the dining table

It just occured to me today, while packing away some food, that I had the equivalent computing power of this sitting on my dining table.

The Cray-4 had 8gb’s of memory, and could push about 32 GFLOPS. My x201 has 8gb’s of memory, its Core i7 processor supposedly does 69 GFLOPS, and it doesn’t mind sharing the table with a bit of bee hoon.
