Hi, I recently bought the ASUS VivoBook S15 S510UQ Laptop which has the following spec:
Intel Core i5-8250U 1.6GHz
8GB DDR4 + 256GB SSD
I've removed all the bloatware and done the best practices listed to reduce the amount of resources Win 10 uses. Once I open 4 tabs on Google Chrome the laptop fan powers up quite loud. I check the task manager and Google Chorme is taking about 40% of the memory. I tried to strip it down and tried Firefox, but still the memory is 40-60%.
My laptop is about 2 weeks old, is this the norm with Windows 10 or is my processor not good enough? I did a lot bit of research was told my processor should be enough for my needs.
I run quite a few apps at once like Skype/slack/spoitfy/notes/chrome. I did these on my last laptop which had a slower processor and everything was fine, although that laptop was Windows 7.
There's many problems in Windows 10 Pro, I too faced problems like automatically shutting down without any problem, over-heating, an increased fan speed (sometimes). But as soon as I changed the OS to Windows 7 Professional, everything is alright.
