I am regretfully fairly certain they are sub par, however, I am purchasing a new laptop which shall arrive in the next couple of days, Iremain hopeful that the issue will resolve itself when I try on the new system.

Some things you might want to try with your older computer:
* Ensure that virtualization is turned on, if your CPU supports it. It will give your simulator a *huge* performance boost.
* Update your graphics drivers to the latest. I just verified yesterday that I was able to boot the simulator using a Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family CPU...but there is an issue with the menus not appearing with this specific GPU. This wont' impact cascades/native development though.
Hope this helps!

I would highly recommend enabling virutaliation on your CPU if you have it. The boot time of the simulator should drop to about 20-30 seconds with this option enabled. Please refer to the simulator documentation for more information.
