    I recently re-downloaded google earth after I deleted it a while ago. So after downloading it and opening Google Earth I notice that it is quite slow and not nearly as fast as it was when i previously had it. My macbook is a White one with a Core 2 Duo processor and is a late 2006 revision. So does anyone here have any suggestions on why is it slow.

    I am also wondering if it could be my hard disk, but I doubt it since I haven't had any crashes and I have been staying at a steady amount of space for at least a month.

    Personally, I wouldn't have thought it was anything o do with your Macbook. I have an iMac and the latest updates are certainly slower to load than earlier versions. I can only assume this is because the program now contains more detailed data and has more features than the original. However I could be wrong! :)
