    Not a lot you can do, it's a slow computer. You can try to up the RAM if the model can take more. You can replace the hard drive with a solid state drive. That's it really, both of those should give you a boost, mostly with how fast programs start up. You may be just better off selling the thing and getting a faster one, RAM and an SSD will cost over $100 which you can use instead for a new laptop.
  2. A lightweight linux distro may be a bit faster, but it still won't be fast. It's a low-end laptop. If it's a new laptop, see if you can return or exchange it.
  3. windows 8 eats up a boatload of vram.... you might want to check how your system is allocating vram... make sure you have at least 1gb of vram available. This is actually something you can adjust on an APU

    The specs are rather low. Don't blame Windows 8 for this necessarily, it's very fast when the specs are decent. The biggest issue here is the 2GB RAM. With Windows 8 running, you're going to have very little left to do anything. The cheapest thing you can do to improve this would be to upgrade the RAM. The best thing you could do would be to return this thing, save an extra $100 or so and get something better refurbished.
