I don't think so as I run the same software on a PII with only 366 MHz
and 256 MB of RAM, and while response times are sometimes around one
second, it's definitely usable. I'd suspect problems with a Flash player
or other helper applications -- or perhaps just a really badly written
JavaScript in one of the pages you loaded...
