    Default New Core i5 Laptop is not that fast after start up

    I just bought a new laptop with a Core i5 450M but the thing is that when i turn on the computer the boot time is okay but when i open any program like opera(browser) after the start up.. it takes time, like maybe 3-4 sec
    I mean it doesnt open straight away when i click.
    Afterwards, everything opens quickly without much wait. Is it that the first time u open any program it takes time and then next time its very quick?
    Is this normal?
    Secondly, how can i see the number of cores that are working while i am using the computer?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    All four cores/threads will be running at the same time, unless you changed something in MSconfigs boot tab, which you shouldn't do. Press ctrl+shift+esc to open the task manager and go to the performance tab. It will show four spaces for CPU usage history.
