A P4 would smash a human brain in Math. As this is what processors do.

Actually, a recent Scientific American article did a pretty good comparison.

Don't have it on me, but another interesting fact was:

You use less of your brain when thinking about something.

Reason: When not thinking, your brain is using more energy to take care of things in the background, on the periphery. It pays more attention to your surroundings, files through its needs and wants, etc.
When you focus, your brain works on that sole thing.

Just something to think about.

I'm not sure of that being a fact, but i'd believe it. MythBusters did a test, didn't catch the conclusion though....
