So i was opening some files on the mac, most of which are stored on an external. I've been using Photoshop CS 2 on intel for a while now and i've never found it slow or a problem until this day. It was a fear of mine in purchasing an intel, and so far i've been really impressed. Originally, i admit i was opening the files from the external (connecte via FW 400) and i thought that was why it was running so slow. So i dragged the files i need to the hd same thing, restarted same thing, zapped the vram, closed all the programs except what i need, and still it's running really, really slow. Any ideas?
