Anything from a new Firefox session, to Kate, to Konsole.

cpu MHz         : 1300.080
So,  that's what it should be.

Furthering investigation of the slow computer, I see that Xorg stays
very high in top, with values like this:
 2471 root      15   0 50440 9.8m 4368 S  0.3  1.0   0:57.83 Xorg

Is that considered excessive? What else could be causing this thing to
run so slow?
