However, in most situations in which people find themselves, the two cars will be stuck in traffic or limited by speed laws. Ultimately, you've got a lot of wasted potential in the Ferrari, compared to the Toyota.
I think this is the best analogy I've heard. I bought my i7 200k simply for the reason that I edit video and encode a lot, otherwise I would have bought an AMD based chip. Thank you for the smile and the wonderful analogy!
