depending when you bought your slug, you can de-underclock it to make it faster 😉
Other than that, there isnt really anything you can do.
iTunes pulls ALL playlist data off an iTunes share before it can start playback.
This is just very very hard on the slug.
Maybe you can get rid of some (large & complex) playlists?
