Is -current really this slow, or do I have something mis-configured?

I'm running -CURRENT on my desktop ... the machine is a P4, no HTT, and
512Meg of RAM ... and I swear the machine is less responsive then my
laptop running on a Celeron 333 with ~192 Meg of RAM ... both are IDE
drives, both are runing X and both are -current ...
But, I'm finding that more often then note, doing things like switching
V-Windows in KDE is 'lagged' ... top on the P4 shows:
last pid: 23514; load averages: 4.30, 3.61, 3.33 up 0+01:31:11 18:01:51
131 processes: 6 running, 125 sleeping
CPU states: 46.7% user, 0.0% nice, 50.3% system, 3.0% interrupt, 0.0% idle
Mem: 327M Active, 43M Inact, 79M Wired, 26M Cache, 60M Buf, 18M Free
Swap: 2048M Total, 300K Used, 2048M Free
while the laptop shows as:
last pid: 89193; load averages: 2.46, 2.18, 2.04 up 1+20:01:22 18:02:35
84 processes: 2 running, 82 sleeping
CPU states: 91.9% user, 0.0% nice, 7.1% system, 1.0% interrupt, 0.0% idle
Mem: 77M Active, 52M Inact, 45M Wired, 8952K Cache, 28M Buf, 1376K Free
Swap: 256M Total, 39M Used, 217M Free, 15% Inuse
Both are running SCHED_ULE ... and both are IDE drives ...
But the P4 just feels like the slower of the two :(
