I have 14 days left on my 2010 13" MBP. In the beginning I didn't even know what the pinwheel was that I saw people referring to. Now, it's beyond an annoyance. It happens most often when I first start the laptop when it's cold but it still it also happens after being on for an hour or anytime. When I first power on my MBP it takes about 10-15 bounces for Chrome to pop up. Then my homepage loads and the pinwheel spins another 10 seconds or so before I can type or scroll or do anything. I can almost guarantee that if I take it in, it won't do it. That's just how things seem to go. I am noticing the pinwheel every single time I fire this up as opposed to never when I first got it. This is my first Mac so I'm not sure how common this is. Is this a common issue and is it fixable or am I just out of luck? Is this just normal degradation of my product or should I take it in for service? Can they test for this or they just going to say "too bad" if it doesn't happen when I bring it in? edit: It's been on for an hour now. Just re-booted OSX and it took 33 bounces to get Chrome going and another 10 seconds of pinwheeling once it got going. I have 60gb out of 200 being used and I have windows 7 on bootcamp. Nearly no programs have been installed. Office being the largest.
