I guess the simple answer is that if you do all your business logic in the applet (no back-end logic), then the applet has to access the data- bases over the network. This alone can cost you an arm and a leg in terms of performance. Other than that applets in the real world will usually perform better than Java on the '400, because you have much more CPU power on your desktop than the portion you get out of your server.
