    Slow new laptop

    Hi, as the title says, I just got a new laptop, bought like 3 or 4 days ago, its not mine but its the one I use. Its an Acer Aspire ES 15 with an AMD Quad core A86410 2Ghz, 12 GB DDR3 L Ram, an AMD Radeon R5 Graphics card and a normal HDD at 5400 rpm. I know that HDDs are slow but counting that its a new laptop and it doesnt have that baaaaaaad hardware, its so frustrating that I can't even play League of Legends at the minimum, even browser games run slow.

    What could be and what could I do? Thanks!
