It's interesting running this Netflix stuff. I've got a 3 GHz P4 desktop and a 1.7 GHz PM laptop, both with 1 GB RAM and fast disks. Some of the operations are slightly faster on the desktop, but others are *much* faster (like 2X) on the laptop. A lot of the ops are very memory bound, running over lists of 50k elements and doing indirection from one big list to another big list.
