Speed of the agenda generation is a often a problem.

It's a delicate one because subjective and objective problems
are often closely entangled in this area (speed of your machine,
perceived acceptable speed for generating the agenda, complexity
of the query, size of your agenda files, etc.)

The only way we can make progress here is by rolling our sleeves
and performing tiny optimizations, one after another.

As a first step, you can try to make a diagnosis the problem by
instrumenting the agenda functions:

  M-x elp-instrument-package RET org-agenda RET

Then doing your agenda query then reporting results 

  M-x elp-results RET

We'll get a rough idea of the time spent and be able to compare
it with the one on other machines.
