Coming to some experts to help with this. Got a great deal on an Asus laptop with an IPS screen, i5, 8GB RAM and couldn't pass it up. But LR and PS are very slow and it is extremely frustrating. Trying to figure out why this is so much slower than my 4 year old PC with an i3 and 6GB RAM.
Running LR and PS using Adobe CC for the latest updates. Removed all bloatware, extra programs, etc. Argh.
