I've never seen Konsole lag on typing.

0.3% of your CPU and 1.0% of your memory usage is unusually light for
xorg, if anything.  What does the top line of top say, for load avg, and
the third line for "%id"?

Also, what does

$ cat /proc/interrupts

say?  Another cool new tool is powertop, it exposes who is waking the
processor out of idle and how often, I would yum install that and paste
what the results are -- be aware moving your mouse will skew them heavily.
