With 1 Chrome tab open, video is choppy and >50% memory is used (Windows 8.1, 4 GB Ram)

2014-10-13, 19:57 PM

Just bought one of these http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/yoga-laptop-series/yoga-2-11-orange/Windows 8.1, 128 Gig SSD, 4.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz. 4th Generation Intel Core i5-4202Y Processor (1.60GHz 1600MHz 3MB)

Brand new computer for $700, and watching video (episodes on nbc.com) is choppy. Chrome is the only thing I have open. Memory usage is at 59%.

I want to return the laptop but missed my window. Is 8 Gb Ram required in our world now to watch video in 1 tab? Does a $700 lap top not cut it these days?

Thanks for reading my rant and for any tips!

Dear Yoga11newbie


Welcome to Lenovo forums


I need you please to confirm is that is happening only with online videos or also the quality of normal video is not fine
Also please try another browser and online streaming of another website

Also please confirm is the internet is normally fine doing other things other than video streaming


Waiting for you input
