Hi,

and welcome to LQ!

Given the fact that the hardware and the OS are pretty close I'd assume
that it's a setting-issue; are you using Gnome? We often see people with
performance problems under Gnome when their localhost is missing from the
/etc/hosts file, and lookup of the machines name goes via DNS, which can
be particularly painful if DNS is via the ISP rather than a local server.

If that isn't the case I'd suggest that you examine the output of dmesg
on the slow machine carefully, and maybe post the output of lspci here,
possibly from both machines for a direct comparison.



Cheers,
Tink

No, that shouldn't be an issue.

Hmmm ... did you check dmesg? Or is that not working for you?
Another valuable source of information for problems with GUI
apps is always ~/.xsession-errors

Cheers,
Tink
