    I like the idea of encrypting my home drive since I work for a security company and we will with governement info.. all that jazz.

    So anyway.. I just setup filevault and it took ~40 minutes to encrypt my drive. My concern is that when accessing data and copying files... things will be slow now... How much of a speed decrease do you guys notice?

    I used to use it on my iBook G3 800 (I switched to Tiger and FileValut is still acting a bit chingy) and there was a bit of performance cost but nothing that was really killing me.
