I think this could be due to the fact that FMGC (remember that this plane
has been produced for 10 years now) is powered by the old but reliable 68000
by motorola and has only about 190k of memory, but when I was flying it I
found it fast enough to perform normal operations and very ergonomic .
However I think that A321-A330-A340 have more powerful processor/memory but
I can be wrong .
