Default what speed should I be seeing for my PII266MHz?

I have the feeling my laptop (PII266MHz) is slower than it should be! Is that so?
[Apr 06 00:02] Factoring M25000000* to 2^65 is 78.76% complete. Time: 4665.439 sec
[Apr 06 01:20] Factoring M25000000* to 2^65 is 80.09% complete. Time: 4680.426 sec

It has 64MB RAM and the speed of prime95 seems to remain the same whether I allow it 33MB or 20MB. On a side note: it's running winME

Speed of factoring is not related to RAM.
I think that RAM usage during factoring is around 8-16MB max.

That speed for a PII I think is right for that range.
