Or if you'd prefer a GUI for system information .. install hardinfo:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hardinfo

Then look in the menu at:-

menu > System Tools > System Profiler and Benchmark

Thanks Mark- was wondering what RAM I have and if it is what's making this run slow at times.

Actually, that benchmark/profiler tool might be useful in investigating where any problems may lie...
