Unhappy ASUS A53S brand new and is really slow

I just purchased the Asus A53S with intel i7 6gb DDR memory, it is the latest intel and suppose to run really really fast, not to mention all the good reviews I found online.

However, it cannot even play youtube smoothly (i have max Wi-Fi signal), browsing is really REALLY slow as well, what is wrong?

Besides, I installed Google Chrome and it is doing weird stuff to it; for example I went to amazon.com, then in another tab i tried to do a google search on something by typing the keyword in the address bar, it would only do a search within amazon.com. I had to go to google.com to do my search, which defeats the whole purpose of google chrome. Maybe there is a setting I need to change?

Sounds like you could just have some bad drivers installed. Try updating them first and see where that gets you, if not you could have a bad video card too.
