We have a test candidate !
If anyone could run their systems against this, it would be great. Just do as below, and please post a link to the results here
In particular, I'd like to set a benchmark so we can compute also machine scores according to the algorithm in the first post (we can do it manually for now). Maybe an atom based netbook (I think you need at least 9 inch display for the 3D test to run). Can someone please run in such a system?

It's not the last word (we can still change/modify/improve the test), but here are my thoughts:
- Added fio "server load" test, which does lots of random read/writes all over the place. This should give the disk a run for its money :-) I think it's along the lines of Grigi's suggestion.
- Since we have a separate test for the disk, I used openssl for a multicore cpu test. It runs faster, it's a small download, and scales very well with CPU speed and number of processors
- For 3D I am using Norsetto-Shadow, because it's a small download. It won't push the newest cards to the limit, but it should run on pretty anything, and should scale with GPU speed and bandwidth (the size of the GPU memory won't matter).I think it's a lot better than glxgears, but small/fast enough to fit the goal of this test.
- For 2D I think the gtkperf combobox tests are more stable and scale better than the gtkperf "draw" tests, so I used one of these.
