I have just taken delivery of a Lenovo Laptop with this spec:
I am replacing, well I was, my old HP with this spec:
AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology TL-64 2.4GHz, 3.00 GB memory with Windows 7
The Lenovo is approx 3 to 4 times slower at everything that I can test, for example:
1) starting Excel and loading spreadsheet takes 15 secs on the HP and between 45 and 60 secs on the Lenovo. (It is a complex spread sheet)
2) Starting IE, and accessing the Santander banbk account takes 15 to 20 seconds on the HP and well over a minute on the Lenovo.
In some respects the HP system has more clutter and I was about to clean it up after the Lenovo was properly installed.
This makes no sense to me at all, quite unexpected and counter intuitive.
But before I send it back does anyone have any ideas as to the cause and possible solution.
