Georg Brandl <georg at python.org> added the comment:

I disagree. An ideal machine is not useful in practice, so any assertion
about it isn't helpful.

In that light, the snippet is correct in saying that if execution of a
snippet is done enough times, the lowest value is a lower bound for
execution speed.

resolution:  -> works for me
status: open -> closed
