Maybe someone was referring to how the Freerunner is *more* powerful than the
average *desktop* computer of the 1990s?

The average laptop of the 1990s wasn't even close to as powerful as
the Freerunner.

That doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement (USB 2.0 would be a
good start), but if you compare the Freerunner to *anything* handheld
in the 1990s, it would be like comparing a mainframe of the 1990s to a
laptop of the 1990s.
