Consolas almost certainly has significantly better OpenType support
than the much older versions of Courier New MS ships.

It is Consolas that is more sluggish, not Courier New.

You also may have some system-level feature enabled, perhaps related to
locale, i18n or the like which resutls in slower itf processing?  (That
or something like that might explain why Óscar was unable to duplicate.)

As far as I can tell Óscar and I are using the same system (Windows 7). My locale is US. Maybe Óscar can tell us what he is using and whether switching to locale US makes it worse?
