I'm learning Pycharm on my Windows 10 system but I have the impression I'm lacking some performance. My system is a Lenovo thinkpad with a i5-5200 processor and 8 Gig of RAM. Hard drive is SSD. I meet the minimum system requirements (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/#section=windows). I already reinstalled my system to get rid of any system 'garbage'.
Compared to Idle and Spyder my IDE's performance/reaction time is slower. i.e. opening a file within a project takes like two seconds. If I press the shortcut to open the settings it takes like four seconds before the screen actually is open. (Just to be clear - PyCharm is more powerfull in many other aspects)
What are your system specs? Any tweak I could consider or should I upgrade my system?
