Benchmarks have been quoted ever since computers started - and they still don't mean much. It used to be a skill, writing benchmarks that made a particular computer look better than anyone else's.  :)  At best they give a *very rough* guide.

String handling: don't run into garbage collection on an old computer or the result is meaningless, even on that machine. Unless you are testing for the efficiency of garbage collection, of course. :)
