Are you making apple-to-apple comparisons running the same applications under the same window manager, etc.? It figures your laptop would run a lot "slower" under DSL because DSL doesn't have the same overhead that a larger distro like SuSE has. That will account for a lot of difference. All it means is that you can run DSL longer per battery charge than SuSE or whatever else runs your CPU full steam.
I don't understand why some of you seem to consider it a "problem" that your CPU speed varies according to the demands placed on it by an operating system and the applications being run. I consider that a benefit regardless of what I'm running, especially if I need more than a couple hours between plugging it in.
