That depends only on the hardware that it had, not on the brand, it could be named IBM, Dell or even Ferrari, but its only about hardware.

The other case is bloated preinstalled Windows with many apps started by default, but that can be very easy fixed with reinstall, as always with Windows.

Also as you use Windows it slows down because of all shit being installed and added, DLLs services and so.

The only workable sollution for that is using this trio:
GoBack (or similar)
Sandboxie (does most work)
Trust-no-EXE

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
