Hi everyone,

 

Not sure if this should be here but.......

 

I recently purchased an ASUS notebook X-102BA and it is just the slowest thing. I installed firefox, thunderbird, macafee and VLC media player and don't know if these are the problem. Any ideas how I might find out what the problem is or is this a feature? :)

 

Thanks all for reading.

Well, the CPU has about equivalent performance to an Intel Atom, and the system gets review comments like "modest performance even for a budget laptop" (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/laptop/3498812/asus-x102ba-review/)

 

Did it seem slow before you installed the mentioned software? Not wanting to seem biased, but I'd try something different to McAfee...

All OEMs (as far as I'm aware) put some sort of trial antivirus on their computers.  You never said whether you uninstall that antivirus.  Moreover, was it uninstalled properly (even though it might be a trial), before installing McAfee?
