  1. Photoshop does take a while to start up, your system is not that slow, it's probably normal speed for the application.
  2. I know that the new version of photoshop is GPU-accelerated. I don't know about the other versions. Install the trial of the new one and see if it speeds up the program for you. Also you can settup a scratch disk on another drive or usb drive to speed up the program.
  3. I've used Photoshop on much on slower machines (even used CS3 on slower machines) and it should be very usable...
