Nexus 5 emulator takes long to load

I created nexus 5 emu running 4.4 kit kat on AVD. I loaded and powered it up but it's taking long to load android operating system. Does my computer specs have anything to do with it?

No it doesn't, I have a pretty fast computer/laptop, and for me it is also very slow. What I should recommend you is to use your own phone as emulator.

This is the link, if you want to learn it.

From what I've seen you need about 1GB of RAM to run the AVD. I have a problem loading it if I have chrome running which takes 50% of my ram and the OS taking the 25%.. That's over 3 gigs meaning i only have one left.. the actual emulator takes over 800MB with the actual studio taking a few 100's

Or you can try out Genymotion. It's a pretty fast emulator.
