I was just wondering if this slows down the computer any? i would assume it might, but i wasn't sure, anyone with experience know? Thanks

There are a few posts around on the net that show a massive decrease in performance of a Powerbook with FileVault switched on, I can understand this as the machine has to decrypt each file on the fly as you use it.
The only recomendation I can give is turn it on and see what a difference there in performance then turn it off again if needed.

It does have some impact on performance as your are encrypting everything going to and coming from the drive. I turned mine off due to inconsistancies with iMovie and have seen a noticable change in performance.
