Good question. I never ran Geekbench against mine when it was running 10.5.6. When I ran it after upgrading to 10.5.7, my score came back as 910.

I ran Geekbench and also found myself at around 400+ (with OS X 10.5.7); not good.
I was then tinkering with my BIOS setting and "Enabled" the Intel Speed Adjust (or whatever it is called; in the same menu section with the USB wake support, etc.; second line down).
Afterwards, I found my Dell Mini 9 running noticeably faster AND it smoothed-out all the jumpiness with Hulu and Netflix. Then, I ran Geekbench and found myself at 900+ (with all other apps shut down).
I never hear this mentioned as a speed fix, but it has made a difference in my speed, both actually and viscerally. Give this a try and see if there is some consensus on this . . .
