Working with Media Composer 8.0 on a laptop?

Hey,

I'm working on documentary with 18 hours of footage and I'm using Avid MC 8.0.
The problem is that the program runs very slow.

Here are the specs:

Raw footage files
- AVCHD
Computer
- 2.3 GHz AMD Quad-Core A10-4600M APU
- 8 GB DDR3 Ram
- AMD Radeon HD 7660G/7670M Dual GPU (1 GB DDR3 dedicated)

I'm working from an external hard drive connected through USB 3.0.
All the file's are AMA linked, not imported.
I've done a sequence of selected Close ups.

Questions
- Would the program run faster if the files was imported instead of AMA linked?
- Can I lower the preview quality and still keep the cut that I've made?
- Any other long-term solutions that will speed up the program?

Thanks,

Adam
Day 32
