Hey guys been a while!
So I just bought myself a new laptop, nothing special just an i5 processor with 6Gb RAM - SAMSUNG Series 5 550P5C 15.6" Laptop - Silver Deals | Pcworld
Now i'm puzzled coz I've played with Windows 8 on my old desktop e2160 processor with 2Gb RAM and it wasn't that bad, I mean I didn't like the interface or anything but the performance wasn't bad.
Now with this new laptop I've turned it on and off a couple of times (updates and setting up etc) and it's just running dog slow, if I load it up, goto desktop and click on my libraries or the folder icon it takes a good 5 - 8 seconds for it to come up.
If I go to pictures and open up a picture it takes between 30 and 60 seconds!
What's going on?
I'm currently downloading Windows 7 to put on it now.
I was open to the idea of Windows 8 as I didn't want to be closed minded and I was trying to get used to it, but I can not put up with this performance, if I open a new tab on ie my touchpad becomes unresponsive for the several seconds it takes to get the new tab ready.
Has anyone else had any performance issues like this with Windows8?
Performance monitor sits at around 60 - 90% memory used?
