Photoshop is a very demanding application

Hi, I would love to start using Photoshop regularly to make illustrations. The problem is, I have a quite old laptop so it doesn't run that smoothly. So my question is: could you try making Photoshop a bit more lightweight, if possible? Or make another software just for regular bitmap drawing?

Photoshop Elements IS a lightweight Photoshop. Then there are also quite a few iPad apps if you have a fairly new iPad.

My laptop is long in the tooth, too (Late 2013), but runs well enough to handle Photoshop still.
