    I wanted to know what I could do about the terrible CPU and GPU on my ideapad. I swapped the SSHD with a crucial SSD 500gb SSD. But the CPU/GPU I can't seem to find but I hear they are soldered in. What can I do to make these better

    They are... you can't upgrade them.

    Shop around for a new computer... my system is the i3 of this.

    That's a decent system mate for an ipad.
    Nvidia has issues with WX default drivers... I know they are working on it but there isn't any timeline for a fix (I'm aware of) yet.

    So the key issue seems to be the NVidia driver. Which one are you using now?

    For the time being
    - please check if your virtual memory/swap space is set correctly (system controlled)
    - you could also specify Max Performance in Advanced System Settings, this switches off Cleartype text, but you can select it afterwards
    - and maybe your system is doing a virus scan or something like that, you can check that in the task manager (after Ctrl-Alt - Del)

    Please come back if I am going to fast and need to explain more.
