    A Bit disappointed

    I bought this desktop computer for my office, I am self employed and figured that it would do the job for the basic everyday work stuff (spreadsheets, email, web browsing). It does, but the computer is really slow and quite frankly, very noisy. The fan is ALWAYS on and you can hear the hard drive turning every time. And I only have the Edge web browser open on a single page and one spreadsheet or word document at a time. I should have known because it has an AMD processor and it is not as easy to know if it is a fast or slow one, like with Intel where you can see if it's i3, i5 or i7. I can recommend it for a high school or university student, but they might be disappointed as well. The good thing is that I can upgrade the RAM and maybe that will speed it up.

      The Lenovo IdeaCentre 310s desktop ships with the Dual-Core AMD A9-9425 processor, supported by 4GB of DDR4-1866MHz RAM. This processor has a base speed of 2.6GHz and a boost speed of up to 3.0GHz. Be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults. If the problem persists, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686. Lenovo

    The computer was purchased for an office. It was easy to set up and use but unfortunately we ran a lot of programs at a time and the computer couldn’t keep up. It started freezing up and operating slowing when we tried doing multiple things at a time. I would recommend it for small day to day activities like Microsoft office and checking emails.

    I thought this would be much better than my old Windows XP...it is better however this PC is very slow at loading. It's not the WIFI or FIBER NETWORK because we have many computers at work and they all work great and are fast. Just disappointed at the loading of everything.

    This is a nice computer for basic functions. It does seem to run slower than our older computer and others we have, although some of the others are higher performance. It's a nice size and fits perfectly on our shelf set-up.

    Decent overall computer once you wipe clean all the factory installed crapware, CPU handles most tasks with ease, can even handle some light gaming though more RAM would help for more moderate use.

      With regard to learning your way around Windows 10, you may want to try YouTube.com (just type that address in your browser address window). There are hundreds for free instructional videos there about Windows 10. Just type Windows 10 Introduction in to the YouTube search window. You can watch free videos there that will show you the basics all the way up to tips and tricks videos and they're all free. Lenovo

    Computer is good for the basics but it runs an A9 which is basically what you find in standard laptops. Not ideal for home based work.
