What version of Wine are you running. To find out simply open a terminal 
application and type:

 wine --version

I am running wine 1.1.19 on Kubuntu 9.10 and do not experience the problems you 
describe. The Windows applications I use by means of Wine are Pegasus Mail, 
e-Sword, and NoteTab. I have also used NotePad which is built into the Wine 
file system. Each of the purely Windows applications has a small glitch but all 
of them are eminently usable. I could not say that if I experienced the lag 
times you describe and I doubt that your problem is related to your computer 
hardware as you would not single out Wine if the hardware were simply too slow.
