    HI, I just upgraded my machine:
    my old one is
    Unibody MacBook Pro 1st gen 2.4 ghz 4gb ram, 500 gb hdd , and running leopard, it runs fast and flawlessly.

    my new one
    Unibodu MacBook Pro 2nd gen (non removable Batt) 2.66, 4GB ram, 640 WD hdd, and running latest Snow leopard, problem:
    -sstem abit lagging eg. when i watch dvd and i want to turn up volume, some times when i press the volume up button (f12) it doesnt straight away change the vol nor shows the volume window, some times i mus wait about 1-2 second for it to happen, but not all the time , and i cant seem to replicate the problem
    -when i watch movies on my i tunes or podcast, some times it sttuters

    i dont know whats wrong .
    i tried formatting the HD and installing from scratch from SL DVD and still its the same.
    my older machine that runs leopard feels faster and snappier,

    is there any thing that i can do to solve this ?

    thank you.

    have you tried to run that new one with a different HDD?

    I dont know if it will void the warranty to change the hd.

    Or try to run the book with only one of the RAM modules installed.


    For me it sounds like something is with the Hdrive.

    i dont think its the harddisk though, cause in window mode , using boot camp, it turns perfectly.

    is there any software that can check my OSX installation or to check something wrong with my MBP ? cause im tired to formta and started from scracth again :(

    apple hardware test on the install cd.
    or disk utility scan.

    I would go and ask apple guys at the genius bar and show them whats going on.
