Hi, I have bought a Latitude 10 tablet. Its 2nd hand but in great shape and runs well. Ive got it now running W8.1 upgrade fine.
Overall I'd very happy with it but it is how very slow browsing the web is. It is like the old days with a modem. At home I have a 6-7mb broadband connection but a few days ago I had a 50mb fibre optic connection and it wouldnt open some webpages or it would take 2-3 minutes or more to open a page. Forget trying to watch a YouTube video. It wouldnt load it.
I have tried using IE and Firefox. Ive disabled add-ons etc.
Check where you use he device in relation to the router,move around the house to see if there is any change in performance.
Although you have moved to fibre the ,speed is still an 'up to' figure, all systems/ISP's are governed by thevloading on the network hence no utube download failure was likely caused by lack of bandwidth.
The only way around that and perhaps the other issues is to stay up late/getup early to 'play' when the network is quiet
Thanks SparkyJack - as I said Im no techie so you'll have to take baby steps with me. The processor is an Intel Atom 1800MHz thing and I have a 1600MHz laptop, which is s standby only unit, that whizzes through the web. The Dell works on XL sheets and Word docs quite quickly so I had assumed that it could compute fast enough. But, not on the web. I use Outlook on the Dell and have a very full Inbox with Gb's worth of stuff in there and it whips through it.
So, do you think that the processor isnt up to it, or is it the RAM or what? Is there anything I can do. I use the web a lot for work to get material prices and so on.
