Would you buy/use a computer that ran 3x slower than modern machines if it were more secure (less vulnerable to side-channel attacks)?

[ ] yes, absolutely
[ ] yes, but not for games
[ ] no, I need all the speed

Interestingly, the numbers are very different on here than they are on birdsite. Many more people here seem to be willing to take a speed hit for security here than there. Not surprising, I suppose: selection bias.
