Well, let's try :
1. Blender is 10 years old now : 10 years ago, there were no 500 MHz
processors and RAM, hard drives were tiny.
2. There was a time when a version of Blender on handheld units was in the
3. Blender is now faster (better code) than it ever was.
4. With the coming of Verse, the future for Blender certainly is for easily
networked computers.

BTW : why 500 MHz ? I doubt that 1, 2 GHz would be more expensive (although
they would require more hank cranking ;) ) to make, especially if you have
