Is there a way to simulate (maybe online) the rendering of a page with a low-end pc?

Actually I am testing it with an i7, but I guess not everyone got a quad-core.

(ps. without downclocking my pc)

Thanks all

If you want very poor performances, use QEMU. It's very usefull for this kind of tests

Virtualization might be the best way to test this. You can get VMware Player for free to try it out.
