    delay when scrolling and choppy streaming of videos.

    I have tried on another forum getting answers to my problem with my new purchase.

    Just acquired my first win 8 laptop. I had a loaner win 8 and hated everything between the computer and OS. I really like this Lenovo but im still having issues with win 8. Mainly this computer and the rental one seems very bogged down. Everything from social media or streaming etc even scrolling down this forum page has such a Lag or delay. Is this typical for win 8, can i do anything about this?

    the lag is a delay. everytime I would scroll down a page it would have a delay, or if i stream a video (I use chromecast) it is delayed and choppy. My Win 7 Laptop had zero issues like these.

    I believe this is a problem with chrome, every now and then I also have this happen to me. I know how annoying it is. Basically all you can do is wait for a new chrome update or install an older version of the browser, sometimes it even randomly goes away.
