As the title says I purchased the Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH today at Best Buy. I got the 1050TI version with a 1TB 7200 RPM HDD. The initial setup took almost an hour and I have been trying to do all the updates for Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update for another 2 hours. Normal boot time is almost 5 minutes to get to a Usuable Desktop and app loads are ungodly slow.
Additionally, everything I can find says this laptop should have the 144 Hz Display but I can't get it to go above 60 Hz no matter where I try and change it.
I have two other Older Lenovo Laptops:
* Lenovo Yoga 710-15IKB that is about 2 years old
* Lenovo Yoga Y50-70 that is about 4 years old
Both of them run absolute freaking circles around this one in general boot time, app load times and overall usage.
Any idea if I have a defective unit (thinking bad hdd) or how I should go about finding the problem?
I was thinking about upgrading the ram from the 8GB it came with to 32GB and adding in a 1TB M.2 NVME drive and ghosting the HDD to the NVME and setting it as the boot drive.
Any thoughts, helpful tips or advise???
UPDATE: I ran some benchmarks using GeekBench 4 and the results where, well, surprising!
* CPU Benchmarks where about 10% below average for the i7 8750H CPU in this laptop! According to GeekBench this processor averages a Single Core score of 4615 and a Multi-Core score of 18508.
* Graphics benchmarks for the Radeon 1050TI where way way way above average for that card! According to GeekBench this card averages a OpenCL score of 83923!

If you got 60Hz instead of the 144Hz (which cost more) take your laptop back.
If you want to replace the y530 (not full refund) buy one with both M.2 NVMe SSD + Hard Disk.
