 I think I'm mixing up the various flavors of Classics. I know the
SE/30 was faster than the Classic II due to it's 32-bit data path
and the Color Classic was slower than the C II due to color
processing. The ringer is the Color Classic II which I'm unfamiliar
with. And now I know why I want one. :^)
