"Native computing power" can be expressed only if one has the tools
required to do so, and it can be assessed only by what one has done.
Since one gets the tools to express native computing power only from
education (formal or informal), it doesn't make much sense to talk about
native computing power apart from education. On top of that, IQ actually
is mutable. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQ#Mutability.

Depends on definitions of "smarts".
AFIK, education doesn't change our native compute power.
It should change our skills in using that native capacity.

If our ability (to use our native compute power) is improved through
training and on-board storage of pertinent information, then an educated
person 'should' perform better where intelligence is needed?
