I'm having the same issue. My wifes mid range i5 that is another 3 years older than my i7 Helix is much, much faster... Honestly I have never been more dissapointed with a purchase.
I have even opened it up, cleaned everything, re-applied fresh thermal paste and replaced the SSD with a new Samsung 850 EVO. Disabling absolutely all throttling and power management in Windows makes it kind of acceptable to use, but that leaves me with no sleep management or anything. I'm a bit stumped with what else I can try.
