So, right now, the only thing holding me back from buying a new MBP is the fact I've got tests for Uni next week. I figure there must be a few other people out there like me with horribly slow computers that can't yet upgrade just now for whatever reason. So, my question is this. What annoys you the most about your slow computer? For me, it's probably opening up large PDF documents downloaded off the net. Any pictures, and its quite simply painful waiting for it to load. This includes lecture notes downloaded from Uni, which is particularly annoying. Another thing is my computer's inability to do much when I'm importing a CD into iTunes. Playing one song while importing another (not both off the one CD) pretty much completely ties up the whole computer, making even word processing (Appleworks) or surfing the net quite simply painful. So, anyone else? This is, I admit, a semi bitch session after trying to open some pdfs, but I'm hoping a good thread will emerge from the pain.
