Is my 13" Macbook just way too old?

I'm getting into photography and starting to do light editing in Lightroom 4 with my Macbook from 2010 (2.4GHz core 2 duo, 4GB ram, ATA hard drive).

The setup is SUPER slow. RAW pictures from my D7000 take a few seconds to load (gets worse as I work on more pictures). Exporting to JPG is painful. Everything is just slow.

Is my computer really just too old to handle dozens of 20mb raw files and Lightroom?
