How come my new Dell sucks soooo bad (and can i do anything about it)?
i just got a Dell Inspiron that cost MORE than my old computer and came with a new generation i3 5015U processor, 6 gb ram, and 1T hard drive.
And, man, is it slow. I expected it to be slow to open programs, boot up, etc, because of no SSD. But, I'm talking just about the internet now. Pages slow to load. Lots of laggy scrolling. A good bit of freezing. Just behaving like a terrible POS. wheely cursor thing constantly circling around, doing what I do not know. All of which, from my reading, has nothing to do with lack of SSD. Could it really be the difference in 2 gb RAM?
Processor specs on old PC slightly better than with new PC but not all that much better.
Man, I don't know if I can live with this thing.
The only alternative I can come up with is to buy a refurb 3521 on ebay for $280 and upgrade it with SSD. After doing that, price would be just slightly more than the $410 I spent on the junky new Dell. But I really hate going backwards in time like that.
