well they generally run something like Java Virtual Machine, which speeds development i guess, but i gathered dual core CPUs in phones don't give that much advantage, they have to throttle back so much because of the thermals, or something.

I built this PC like 7 years ago, and it was fairly low-spec even then. It's still fine for general every day usage, although some websites now have so much javascript it slows everything to a crawl, and i get like 1fps when scrolling. Well i have some idea why, it's so they can dynamically resize for mobile phone screens. And you get pages with thumbnails, but they're actually huge images just shrank down in the HTML.
