I ran a ZX Spectrum emulator on a reasonable PC. It took 100% CPU and ground the host machine to a halt. There is something weird about the amount of effort it seemed to take to run a 30 year old system that baffled me.

Idk why but my laptop was running SUPER SLOW earlier when I was just using Word and had the browser open in the background. Wtf, laptop.

Get yo OS on an SSD, it’s a game changer. Next time you buy a PC/Laptop make sure it has a solid state drive and that the OS is installed on it. Performance no longer degrades through use. (at least at a rate that is far less noticeable)
