If I had to guess I would blame the hard drive. They are slow. 500 MB/s for a SSD is still pretty slow compared to my DDR3 memory that peak at 17,066 MB/s (Mine are 2133). Plus that 500 MB/s will only be seen on sustained sequential read/writes. Most of the programs for Office involve a whole bunch of small files. So you will not be writing several large files where it can get up to the top speeds you will be writing a lot of small ones where it cannot get up to speed and will take a lot longer. That is why a lot of games can be installed faster as a majority of the size comes from large texture files and videos/media.
But wait the speed of my memory is also rather slow when compared to my graphics card with GDDR5 memory that has a bandwidth of 288 GB/s. That is around 300,000 MB/s for those who need the comparison, 17 times faster.
