As you saw, the Spectra400 did not perform up to par with the Celeron System at almost 400 MHz. This was expected. The SDRAM (both in amount and bus speed), The Voodoo (AGP rather than PCI), the hard drive (a LOT fater), and other "modern" components gave the Celeron box an easy advantage.

Where the Spectra400 is strong (performance wise) lies in its floating point scores. Also, it was very obvious that programs opened fast and were much easier to use. In fact, the WIndows 98 load time was about 45 seconds quicker with the Spectra400.

Finally, all that can really be said about the Spectra400 is that it is an easy upgrade. Perfect for office and home office use. If you're typing up your school reports on an old 100 to 133 MHz (Pentium, Cyrix, K6-5) this would be a great upgrade for you. Not only would you be able run Windows 98 (a lot smoother) but you could watch the letters appear in your word processing program. I know that when typing with Cyrix, I could type faster than the words could appear on the screen. Simple. Easy. Good for web machines. Hardcore computer people need not apply.

Final Score

3.5 out of 5 Weird Blue Faces
