Didn't check on Live DVD prior to installation but this 2013 Debian Mate release is quite CPU intensive on my laptop.
Stays at around 98% !

The 'memory' in about link is relative to present use in Windows 7 .32 bit.
What's odd with this intensive CPU usage in LM Debian Mate is the fact that the fan doesn't turn on to cool the system down.
At least in Windows i can rely on that to tell me there's something going on. Usually because of Adobe Flash player.
