One of the simplest ways to speed up your code is to buy a faster computer. While this advice is certainly trite, it is something that should still be considered. However it is often unclear to determine the benefit of upgrading your system. The `benchmarkme` package aims to tackle this question by allowing users to benchmark their system and compare their results with other users. This talk will discuss the results of this benchmarking exercise. Additionally we'll provide practical advice about how to move your system up the benchmark rankings through byte compiling and using alternate BLAS libraries.
