Well then there's something going on with this machine or
installation.  I've read some others using Unity without much trouble
on this very machine and with less memory installed.  I think all is
well with the memory and hard drive so there are some things slowing
it up.

My only start up applications are drop box and the weather indicator,
which is not working any longer anyway.  At the moment, running just
Midori, I am using 1.2 gigs of memory running 2D.  Gnome system
monitor takes up quite a bit of cPU time but only from time to time.
I have seen it bounce up to 68% per System Monitor.
