certainly not Ubuntu, I scroll like .. here on Ubuntu 11.4 even with my 
photo´s on an slow external 2,5 inch drive. But I have my db on the 
internal drive.
Did you use the tool ¨rebuild all thumbnails¨ , that is essential, for 
comfortable scrolling.

Yes me too, but never mind.

Unity bar? I did not know such terrible thing ever exists in digikam. I 
have my ubuntu set to classic. And removed the terrible overlay 
scrollbar as well, so everything is great.
Need help to do so, ask!

I do not store tags in pictures, so I don´t think I have that problem if 
i have I am not aware of it.

I use a laptop HP Pavilion dv7 with an AMD Phenom(tm) II N930 Quad-Core 
Processor, 4Gb memory, but my desktop computer with lower specs and less 
memory is more speedy.
So specs is not everything, and if I am well informed your laptop has an 
I5 processor, wich is not so bad at all. Your screen is indeed small, 
mostly no problem to the younger of age, but as I am no longer one of 
them, I had to dispose my 15 inch and use now 17 inch wich is fine for me.
