It's running OK for me on a 7 year old laptop. I also try to keep it tidy and get rid of programs that I don't use often. Also make sure that there aren't things running in the background that could be slowing things down.
Yes a tech head like me is running a 7 year old laptop! I keep replacing parts as they fail in a stubborn attempt to see how long I can make this thing last without it costing me a fortune. Seriously pieces of plastic fall off all the time, and I've replaced the fan and hard drive, but this thing refuses to give up the ghost!
I'm wondering if it is an ad that's making it run slow for some, I use an ad blocker and have had no issues with load times.
