I have seen that the File Open menu on most applications defaults to a "Recently Used" files/folders list. It's not as convenient as a centrally located list on the start menu but it's something. That indicates that Pcmanfm keeps track of such things, right? Those with the know-how might then be able to extract and present this info?

Are you running a window compositor? My desktop is almost the same specs as your laptop and I am able to run xcompmgr, no problem. It only uses about 1.5 MB memory and the window movement/redraw is much smoother.  

P.S. I'm a new guy here so hopefully I did this right
