Yes, I agree :( On my desktop, it takes a /trivial/ amount of time,
definitely under a second.  But the Asus is much much slower,
especially as most of the system resides on an SD memory card which is
not particularly fast.  I should say that the .org files searched by
the agenda take up about 0.5 MB.

Which part can you not reproduce?  Even on my fast desktop, if I'm
viewing the daily agenda for May 10th (say), when I hit 'j', I get the
calendar window displayed, the agenda window updates to show the
current date's agenda items and I can then type in a new date in the
mini-buffer.  This happens quite quickly but it *does* happen.

On the Asus, it all happens much much more slowly.  Removing what
seems to me to be a redundant agenda view update would speed things up
tremendously.  It's not unbearable because the benefits of using
org-mode are well worth it but it does mean that I use org-mode more
cautiously on the Asus than I would otherwise.

I will delve into the org-agenda code!
