I think "Magazine" is as wrong (or right) as "softhouse XXX" in this
case, and they both didn't explain things correctly.
E.g. more features might require more memory, but not necessarily a
faster CPU, so that program might require a new computer because the old
one can't hold enough RAM, while it might be really faster when the
speed is compared on the same CPU.
