Does Onshape speed depend on computer power?

Hi. I'm trying to determine whether the user's experience of Onshape is at all affected by the computer's power. 

Does your computer's "power" (in layman's terms) affect the end user's experience of Onshape at all? I need to know because I am going to buy a new computer soon. 

I believe I was told at one point that your computer power really doesn't matter, because Onshape is almost totally cloud-based. I am skeptical of that because of my subjective experience of significantly different speed experiences of Onshape on different computers. I'm sure there's many variables involved.
