I bought a MB c2d 2.0 on day 1. at the same time, i bought a MBP 15. the MB was for a girl employee that was living with me. She moved out a week later and took my MBP with her (several states away) and left me with the MB. but enough of that. the problem (aside form the obvious one with the girl) is that with 1 Gig of ram it's running out of memory a lot of the time. i'm running the same apps (or less) on it than i did on my old emac (1Ghz, 1Gb), and it never ran out of memory. i like the MB, but it's slower than the old emac and runs low on memory. How can that be?! it's got the same amount of memory. and it's a 2 Ghz c2d instead of the old 1Ghz old emac. never once happened on the emac. there's no new apps because i just migrated everything over to the MB. i DO love my little MB. had no problems or whine or dead pixels or loose keys, etc. that others have complained about. it's just slow! i've had it a month as of today. can anyone give me any insight as why a fast new machine with same ram is slower and needs more memory than a 3 year old emac?
