Is it a laptop or desktop? If a laptop, then I can understand why people wouldn't necessarily want the CPU running full tilt if they're planning to use it, but for a desktop there isn't really any perceptible difference. (Not that it's always easy to explain that to a non-techie...)

Ah, but primes come in bunches--9000 is just in between bunches right now. When they come, it will be a windfall (like the one that hit 3000 earlier today).
