Yeah, well, your average PC user is used to thinking in terms of Intel
clock speeds. It's just all he knows.

If he doesn't understand the technical explanation of why raw clock speed
doesn't translate directly, point out that his Farrari won't get a ton of
bricks across town more quickly than your heavy truck, no matter how much
faster it can go.

If he still doesn't get it, shoot him in the head and be done with it. The
average intelligence of the world will go up, just a little bit. :)
