I've recently bought a new ideapad 330 (i7 8250U,8gb ram 1 tb HDD), set it all up and updated everything that needs updating (windows/drivers) but its running extremely slow.
While I get its not the most powerful laptop it should be able to handle me doing more than 2 task at a time without it causing me porblems.
Its struggling to switch windows when I'm doing multiple things and generally running awful,the boot is slow and until it opens google chrome takes about 2 minutes
Any ideas why this brand new laptop is running like I've had it years old?
Thanks in advance.

Check to see if you are in battery saving mode. That could potentially slow it down. Also look to see how many programs are open inside the task manager. Having a lot of programs open could also be the case. I recommend disabling the startup for any program you don't need in task manager. Is your memory, HDD, and CPU usage high?
