I have a Hewlett-Packard ZE4805WM, which has the XP-M 2800+ (2.1GHz).
I am running FC2. When connected to AC, it spends most of its time
throttled down to ~533MHz. It only goes up to the full speed when I'm
doing something like building a kernel (or when certain of those 3D X
screensavers come on).
The fan *never* activates while I'm just word processing, emailing
I don't know how this behavior compares to Windows on the same laptop,
since I reformatted it the day I opened the box, but I don't see how
it could possibly get any better.
