It is a slow processor and has a HDD, not SSD, for media.

You may need to use it with the power adapter attached for it not to throttle back the processor as it does when on battery only.

Depending upon the media and effects used, you may need more RAM.

 

Try using proxies and see if that helps:

Also, PPro puts a LOT of strain on the CPU, so to avoid overheating you need to buy a 'fan pad'
