I have a Toshiba Satellite A70, that have an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000IGP and 
the default kubuntu install give me a system with few visual effects and a lot 
of CPU utilization. Disabling the desktop effects gives very small improve but 
still huge CPU load; over 70% and just hovering over emails in kmail, with 
kontact using +30% and xorg +40%.
It is killing (literally) my machine (hot, power, etc.)
