please define usable speed.

reading a book or manual
running a spreadsheet analysis
writing a thesis
web browsing
playing audio

they all have different characteristics and if you are after simple mass

special knowledge can be a terrible disadvantage if it leads you too far 
along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
