Im only 1 week into the Mac world and Ive had no prior experience with Apple products. So far, I am loving my 15 MBP. I do have a very general question though. When opening IE or Firefox on my PC, both applications would snap open almost instantaneously with my homepage set to basic google. However, when I click either Safari or Firefox in my dock on my MBP, sometimes, it takes upwards of 5 full seconds before the program will actually load up (both with google as homepage). Ill click, for example, Firefox, and the icon will bounce up and down for about 5 seconds before anything even opens up. It is usually the slowest upon a full restart (or startup). And then, if I quit and try to reopen, it is slightly faster. Is this normal? Btw, I have the 15 MBP, 2GB ram, and 5400 200GB hd.
