My least capable laptop is a 2006 Dell Inspiron with 2GB RAM, 120GB SSD and W10. It boots from cold in 33 seconds and gets a web search done in that total 33 seconds.
I don't have MS Office '16 but Libre Office and that starts up in about 20 seconds and I'm typing.
Is your low budget Lenovo lower than this?
OK, I did buy a low budget Lenovo computer with Windows 10 a few months ago. My issues, open Office '16 and keyboard won't work for 10 to 20 seconds. Tap the keyboard and nothing. Open the Solitaire games and when I put the cursor on a game to open it, absolutely nothing happens. Using the scroll wheel on the mouse and the window bounces up and down several times or just doesn't work. When I get frustrated I try to restart. I put a stopwatch on it and the restart takes anywhere from 5 1/2 to 7 minutes to shut down and re-start. Should I take a shotgun to the Lenovo and spend the bucks for something that works?
Thanks for any help
