Well, I have speedstep on my Core 2 Duo notebook and I can Definitly
tell when its running in Performance mode (full speed) and when its not.

There is ever so slight a lag, just enough to be irritating when its
trying to save power.

Since I can't hear the fans anyway on this notebook, I run in
performance unless I'm not plugged in.

Some of us do other stuff besides email. I know that's
hard to believe. ;-)
