It's a Celeron 2.4 GHz processor
640 MB RAM
In the task manager, under normal usage, it shows there is something like 200 MB of available RAM. I'm inclined to think that it's just slow because it's a Celeron. My Pentium 4 1.6 GHz with 512 MB RAM significantly outperforms that computer.
Any thoughts (other than to get a new computer)?
