Not saved. Doesn't matter what I play. It also lags without playing anything.

Sucks that this is with a work computer. Fighting IT to get replacements or upgrades is way harder than it should be... as they should be computer people and realize how much more productive you can be with a good machine.

Thankfully my company recognizes this and just upgraded (most of) the company to new Lenovo Carbon X1 and Dual/Triple 24" Monitors. i7-6600 and 16GB of ram. Much more similar weight/speed compared to apple that I contemplated actually buying a Carbon for my personal computer instead of the new MBP I got.

Having said all that... I have no suggestions for you aside from bribing your IT/Facilities for a newer machine.
To be fair, any decent company should be funding their IT department enough to put their employees on at least three year replacement plans for hardware.

Some companies still have the archaic view that IT is just a cost center, while others have realized that modern, agile IT can enable their employees to be more productive and help the business achieve goals.

Oh, and not to get technical, but iOS is their mobile OS. The Macs run OSX.

As people have mentioned. Ccleaner is amazing. Also check windows updates are fully up to date and uninstall any programs you donít use.
