I've actually found that anacron makes things worse...  boot laptop,
watch it become completely unusable as anacron kicks off cron jobs that
would have happened when "idle".

Not to mention that it's starting another init.d service (two, if you
count starting crond) which is going to end up offsetting the boot speed
difference of not running yum-updatesd as an init.d service
