slow browsing out of the box, can someone help?

Just received yesterday, so no apps/extensions bogging it down. I've read the forums and tried the tricks with no luck. My internet connection is fine (chromebook sitting next to 3 years old Dell latitude, both show speedtest download result of 28MBps.
Yet the Chromebook takes 50-1000% longer to open all webpages than the Dell using Chrome browser.
Can someone help benchmark Yahoo stock quote charts? Go to yahoo financial, get a stock quote (say AAPL), then hit '5yr' chart. My chromebook consistently takes 20-25 seconds, whereas all other computers take 2-3seconds. What's going on?
I've also switched amongst Beta/Dev/Stable channels with no luck. I'm ready to box this thing up. thanks
