windows seems slow on i7 laptop vs AMD x2 desktop - help

Hey experts,

my new i7 laptop seems really slow and sluggish compared to my old AMD x2 desktop computer which I built 6 years ago.

the full specs of the laptop are as follows..

2nd generation Intel i7 Quad Core
8GB DDR3 RAM
750GB Hard Drive
1GB Nvidia 540M graphics

I initially thought it may be all the bloat ware that Lenovo added onto the machine so I wiped it all and put on a clean Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on it and nothing else however its still slow.

Anyone got an suggestions on how to speed up this beast and make the whole experience a little less time consuming :-)

Cheers

Hello scott7saunders, by a clean install I assume you've already also updated all your drivers to the latest ones from their respective manufacturers?

Please fill up your system specs fully by following this tutorial so we can get to the bottom of this:-
