In my laptop (dual core, used for development) I found that compiling
from an encrypted partition was noticeably slower. I wound up setting up
an encrypted partition, but only placing there things I consider
sensitive (which does include the swap, mail, client's sources, my
family images etc.), as well as some other automatically generated stuff
(such as /var/lib/mlocate and ~/.bash_history, both via symlinks).
I guess it really depends on your use scenario. I'm using the laptop to
compile Android (1.5GB) and Linux kernels.
Also, I do not run any virtual machine from the encrypted partition -
too much trouble.
