Too slow for what and what were you using for a synthesizer?  If you were using computer intensive voices as opposed to something like Eloquence or E-speak, the machine may have been unresponsive to the point of annoyance. If you were using Eloquence or E-speak, it may not have been.  I’m not saying anything about the machine; I have no opinion of it.  But I think that if people make such comments, they should state what they used the machine for and what synthesizer they were using with which screen-reader.
