Today I installed Mathematica 3.0 on my computer.

I tried something like "Timing[N[Pi,13000]][[1]]" or
"Timing[N[Sin[1/2],4000]][[1]]" etc.

Here the results with "Timing[N[Pi,13000]][[1]] ":
(I tried many more expressions)

Win95 OEM2 / ASUS Board 200 MHz Pentium / 64 MB : ca. 20 sec.
Win95 OEM2 / Toshiba Tecra 720CDT 133 MHz Pentium / 48 MB : > 20 sec.

BUT:
Win3.1 / ASUS Board 133 MHz / 32 MB : 10 sec.

ANYONE HAS A IDEA, WHY IT IS SO SLOW ?

I also entered the expressions directly to the kernel -> same results
