Nothing should be slow as long as you keep your DB on the other disk.
I am using an old Acer Travelmate with 1.4GHz as my secondary
backend/frontend and I see no problems at all. Database is on the
master backend/frontend. And if this 5-6 years old Acer notebook can
do it, Atom should be able to do it even easier.
