As I said, I am using an 800 MHz iBook G4, that's certainly not "fast 
as lightning".
A few weeks ago I posted some instructions on this mailing list on how 
to set up a flashmode for emacs (whizzytex), with TeXniscope as 
  the result is pretty good in terms of speed. There is also a 
Tcl-script by Joachim Kock (but that's for AlphaX ) which is at least 
as fast, maybe faster.
There are also the flashmode scripts by Claus Gerhard (also not for 
emacs), but, according to the home page, a G5 is recommended.
Perhaps you tried out Gerhard's scripts and were disappointed ?

There is, of course, also Textures. I have never actually seen it in 
action. How does it compare in terms of speed ?  Can it be set up to 
with Gerben Wierda's teTeX , or does it use its own TeX engine ?
