we purchased a lenovo celeron ideapad recently and to be frank its so slow we havent used it. I cant believe, even though this is not a top spec machine that it can be so slow straight out of the box. It is only meant to be an admin laptop so all that is installed is open office and the canon printer drivers. Is there anyway we can get this machine usable or is it just money down the drain?

Which model? My 110s had a similar problem when I got it but that was solved by purging the startup program list. In the past week I added a 120 GB solid-state drive ($50) and also updated the wifi driver. Now, the little 110s is nearly as responsive as the big machines I use.
The less expensive machines all come with bloatware pre-installed which must be un-installed to obtain good performance. All are capable of good, even sometimes great, performance when you remove and stop all the unwanted programs from auto-starting. Good luck.

anything with a Celeron (lowest grade of Intel processor) are going to be slow... remove unused programs and realize multitasking will be laborious. If you have a good size usb drive32 Gb would be nice; you can use that as ready boost virtual memory. But there goes one of your ports. But, if it works great.
Also make sure you defrag and check disk for errors.. clean out junk via C: properties
