I was going to post this in the 10.5.2 thread in here, but it got locked (presumably because 10.5.2 is more about OS X and not the MBA). But I figured this might be of interest to specifically to MBA users:

10.5.2 update for MBA: 341 MB
10.5.2 update for MBP: 180 MB

Anyone know why there's a discrepancy? (heat/fan/cpu fixes, battery charging fixes, video drivers?)

your MBP is not a C2D...see the main thread.

This is one of those times when having the USB Ethernet dongle for my MBA is going to come in handy. ;)

I always download the combo updates. In this case it was 343 MB.

...Why? You think lots of people on here have Internet connections in excess of 40mbit?

Really? What graphics card do you have? My update clocked in at 341, and I have the standard ATI card with the Quad Xeon.

That's the combo. I have a Quad Xeon MP with the ATI card as well and my update was only 180mb.

Downloaded and installed. On initial boot up (after it's restarted a second time) I can see that there is a new time machine icon on the menu bar.

Battery status remains unchanged though and still is seemingly taking forever to charge the machine.

Yes, no change in that. Still taking forever. Disappointing

What the heck can the extra space be taking up if it didnt fix the charging issues, nor the heat issues.

Tsk Tsk...

32bit CPU's versus 64bit? Different update sizes?

That's my guess.

I have two Alu iMacs. Both are configured identical AFAICT. One took a 180MB, one took a 341MB. :confused:
