It IS possible that upping the RAM would help, and in all probability your laptop hard drive is 5400 RPM rather than the recommended 7200 or faster for video work. I would be concerned, however, that the age of your laptop and its operating system, as well as possibly undernourished CPU, even the graphics card/video card, might simply be too little to offer even though it shouldn’t be too much to ask.

I hesitate to suggest that ONLY a desktop system would suffice because there’s powerful enough (albeit expensive) laptops available, and even the latest iteration of iMac with the OPTIONAL faster CPU and 27″ screen, 2 TB option and maxed RAM is a powerhouse for using iMovie and/or FCP, and/or FCPX (that last is shear speculation because I’m only reading and listening to others who have jumped onboard, and not experienced the new Lion OS or FCPX myself) … I’m a wait awhile kind of fella.
