The neo1973 has ~8 times the floating point performance of a VAX 11/780
(double precision).   The initial version of Mathematica was developed
on a VAX 11/750 - the Freerunner should be about 20 times faster than
that machine in floating point.   It was also rare to run across an
11/750 with more than 4 MByte of RAM.
