I got a new laptop and it's really slow. I used Laplink PC Mover to transfer from the last system to this one and thought that it may have junked up the registry or something so I reset Windows 10 to factory and not the system benchmarked even lower than before. Can a tech at a computer store help with boosting performance or am I just stuck with a slow computer?
I mainly use it for home internet browsing and photo editing with Adobe Creative Cloud.

Unfortunately a notebook with such a weak CPU will never have a chance to get much better results. I bought a used business notebook last year and just inserted s new SSD drive. Just look at my results and see whats wrong with your hardware. This HP notebook is from 2012! I live in Germany so I cannot say much about other markets but refurbished business hardware is usually cheaper and has got still more performance than low end consumer stuff from regular computer stores. I bought another notebook last week. I will upload its results too - so you can compare these too. The Lenovo has Intels second generation of mobile core-i7 cpus, the HP instead had already the third one of core-i5. The Lenovo is not running with an SSD and its Nvidia quadro graphics are not aimed on gaming.
