A word for this problem?

Coined by Shell over at NotQuiteSusie, this word caught my attention on a post she did for the Lady Bloggers Society. 'Lappytop.' Good word to describe the poor physical condition of your stomach brought by too much time spent at your laptop - inspired by the classic term 'muffin top,' which is the perfect word in terms of both the source and eventual appearance of said problem. I'm trying to come up with a word to describe the interminable waiting period as your computer processes a command - even something as simple as 'save' or 'paste' takes Tightwad's computer wwaaaaaaaaaaaay toooooooooooo long. I am losing out on quality experiences here. In fact, I'm aging. I must be. Surely I could combat lappytop with a faster computer???

Thanks for the shout-out! You're more than welcome to use the term; if you come up with a word for that waiting period- let me know! In the meantime, I just call it "annoying". :)
