Does PowerPoint 2010 run lag-free?

PowerPoint 2010 is running slow on my system. It takes a long time to redraw thumbnails every time I go to slide sorter (up to 1/2 second per slide), lags a lot when moving objects on a page or when flipping from one page to the next. Seeing as I do PowerPoint for a living, this is not so good. Before I shell out for a new computer, I wanted to make sure this is my computer and not a problem with PowerPoint. So, my question: Do you find PowerPoint 2010 to be nice and snappy on your system?

I'm on a one year old Sager NP5796
laptop running Windows 7 x64.
- 4gb of RAM
- Intel Core Duo P9500 2.53ghz
- nVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX w/1GB GDDR3
I had the same issues when I was running Windows XP.
PowerPoint 2003 ran like a dream (well, as much of a dream as PowerPoint gets) and I skipped 2007 so I don't know how that would do.
Bottom line: Specs or not, I'd just like to know if 2010 runs smoothly for anyone.
