Actually, not so much about RAM but a reminder for some dK users:  
Laptop hard drives are WAY slower than desktop in moving data in and 
out, for a number of reasons I won't go into.  Having a hyper-speed CPU 
in a laptop is driving your Ferrari only in your driveway.  (You DO have 
a Ferrari, don't you?)  Couple a slow hard drive with limited RAM and 
you can be assured of slow processing in any data intensive operation.
