My two machines are a 1.25 ghz G4 iMac (PPC) and
MacBook Pro with Intel Core Duo (not Core Duo 2). I
ran a spellcheck on a 48,000 word document with footnotes
that had no misspellings, so WP went through the
document without stopping for user input. The check
took 16 seconds on PPC and 20 seconds on Intel, but
all Macintoshes for sale now have the next generation
Intel chip, the Core Duo 2, so I'd imagine that WP
is generally faster with that chip and SheepShaver than

I included an Applescript applet named something like
(I'm not at home now) "Desktop Reset" for this purpose.
It's in the Utilities folder.
