Grub is heavy. The FreeBsd boot selector is much more efficient. It
is more suited for an old laptop.

The FreeBsd boot selector allows a one keystroke selection.
Grub forces you to press arrow keys until the curser is over the
desired option.

I put the FreeBsd boot selector into the MBR and for Linux Grub or
Lilo into a primary or extended slice (partition).
