so I have gotten a Laptop from my company to work with.
It is a Dell Latitiude 5310 with a Intel® Core™ i5-10310U CPU @ 1.70GHz × 8 and 16 GB of Memory.
I am running Pop OS 20.10 on it with this Kernel:
5.8.0-7642-generic #47~1612288990~20.10~b8113e7-Ubuntu SMP Wed Feb 3 02:27:26 UTC 2 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I always run the Laptop with 2 Monitors attached which are 1440p. One Monitor is directly connected via HDMI to the Laptops HDMI port, the other is connected via a USB C HUB.
The Laptop does not have Thunderbolt. Its just USB C Displayport or however that is then called.
The USB C Hub is used with:
- USB for Kamera, Mouse, Keyboard, Headset
I mostly like the performance, but since I am working remote (even without Covid) we have to have to use a lot of zooms.
When using zoom my Laptop feels like barely usable.
When having a zomm session and sharing desktop, everything is super slow.
Clicking on a Slack group or person chat takes around 5 seconds until the chat opens.
Jira is loading an eternity. when trying to open the standup board or creating a ticket during a meeting to keep track of it.
Is there anything I can do to improve the performance with zoom?
What is the actual reason why it is so slow?
Is this more of a hardware than a software issue?
I am already running a node-exporter and process-exporter on this laptop to gather some data in prometheus (running on my local server) to have a look. Just started this a few hours ago.
I just would like to know if I can do anything to make the work-life bearable.
If not I would like to gather data and explain, that this machine is not capable of helping me do my tasks with good arguments.
Thanks for the input
