I've used avast on 300MHz 128 MB ram computer one year ago with no problem. below you'll see my present system. It works great! With kaspersky personal work was awful!

Without AV it boots really fast. It's true, it takes some time to boot in, but the work perfomance is not affected for me. but if you want to have really slow PC - use Kaspersky (not recommended)  ;D ;D
