Photoshop: Takes a long time to open on Razer Blade 14" 2015

I have a 2015 Razer Blade 14" which has:- Intel i7-4720 HQ CPU 2.6 Ghz (turbo boost to 3.6 Ghz)- 512 GB SSD- NVIDIA 970M graphics card- 16 GB RamThis computer is pretty much brand new, but opens Photoshop CC slower than my 2012 Macbook Pro 13". When the Razer does start Photoshop, I have to give the pull-downs menus some time or else they won't react when I click on them. After they react I have no problems whatsoever running Photoshop on the Razer. Here are the Macbook Pro's specs:- i7 2.9Ghz (turbo boost to 3.6 Ghz) - 1TB HDD- 8 GB RamThe Razer plays very demanding games with no problem, but lags in Photoshop. The Macbook Pro opens photoshop almost instantly. I feel like a computer from 2015 (the Razer), with these specs, should run Photoshop with ease. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling PS on the Razer and messing with settings, but nothing helps. Please let me know if there's any way to fix the lag when starting photoshop on my Razer. Thanks in advance!

We're looking at buying a Razer Blade Pro with the same idea that it should be a very good machine for Adobe CC apps, specifically for editing video.  Did you ever get any information related to your post here?

How many fonts do you have installed on this system? If you go to Type > Font Preview Size > None and restart, does it launch fast/normally without the menu lag?
