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


@cwebber basically the only computationally expensive task I do is software development (okay and guix).
If people would realise that their phones are sometimes 1.5-2x times slower than their desktop, more would answer positively I believe.
If not for development, I would say "yes" probably. Not sure.
