I have an older computer with very minimal memory, graphics and hard drive space and it starts slowing down when I get several photos up to edit. I decided to buy a new computer that I thought would be lightning fast.
HP Envy 700-216
Processor: AMD A10-6700 (3.7GHz) Up to 4.3GHz Turbo
Processor Core: Quad-Core
Memory: 12GB DDR3 (PC3-12800)
Max Memory: 32GB
Memory Slots: 4
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 8670D
Hard Drive: 2TB SATA (7200rpm)
Optical Drive: SuperMulti DVD±RW
Audio Codec: Integrated IDT 92HD73E
Sound: Built-in 7.1-Channel Audio
Network: 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
It does great with the programs I run but when I get online it is very slow and seems like it takes a few seconds for the pages to load before you can click on anything. My old computer is Great for surfing and very fast.
The only thought I had was the included Mcafee anti virus so I disabled it for an hour but it didn't seem to help. I also went to the "start up" menu and disabled everything that I didn't need.
Any ideas why a new computer loaded with cool stuff is slower than my 3 yr. old computer?
