sure, Kevin,
I agree with your comment on system component combinations 
(hardware/drivers...) here, especially as the situation w.regard to intel 
drivers has much improved meanwhile (see my blogpost 
http://www.hoernerfranzracing.de/php/wordpress/?p=137 on this topic).

well, I won't pretend anything else, but it should be noted that
- the very same machine _flies_ with kde3
- there are still huge numbers of pc's with comparable specs out there which 
are now (with kde4) even useless for simple web browsing/email etc.
