Brand new Ideapad 330 is very sluggish!

I recently purchased a Lenovo laptop, and I'm surprised that it's extremely sluggish. Booting takes about 4 minutes and even opening a browser takes several seconds.


I'm trying to figure out what's causing this marked lack in performance, and I'm in a bit of a denial about having been sold a dud laptop, especially since my 9 yr old laptop was performing much smoother than this one. 


I've already Uninstalled McAfee, and I'm considering reinstalling windows without the Lenovo fluff. Any ideas that could help? 


Laptop config:

Lenovo Ideapad 330 Intel Core i5-8300H 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop (8GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home/ 4GB Nvidia 1050 Graphics/ Onyx Black/2.2 kg), 81FK00DKIN
