Same here. The lab systems are actually pretty nice (Q6600, 3gb DDR2, HD 2400 pro, 22" LCD) but application loading times are still painfully slow in comparison to my system.

Gah all our systems are crap. IBM thinktanks or whatever they're called; single cores with duals in the new ones, though we don't get those. Like a minute and half before you finally get logged in, another minute or so to open flash or illustrator; drives me insane.
