If anyone is familiar with me... I was quite displeased with Snow Leopard when it came out all the way to the 10.6.2 update on my laptop. I downgraded back to Leopard, then my Airport card went out, and I had the laptop sent back to get repaired, where they replaced a lot of things including the logic board, sata cables, display cables, Superdrive, and of course the Airport card. Leopard was broken afterward, so I installed Snow Leopard to give it another chance. All I can say is... Wow... there was a hardware problem with my MacBook Pro causing something to mess Snow Leopard up. I used to have the spinning beachball all the time, but now I hardly ever see it. In fact, the only time I have seen it was when Flash crashes (which happens quite often). I'm sorry I gave Snow Leopard such a bad name when it was just faulty hardware to blame. Even more surprising is that half of my App incompatibilities before the repairs are now gone. I just have bad luck with MacBook Pro's I guess... I'm about to have to send it out again for another Airport card replacement as I cannot get a signal when the access point is less than 5 feet away in my college department's lounge. It's definitely me because every one else connects at full speed with full signal while I can only manage maybe a bar or two with a max of 2Mbps. This one is a replacement for a Early 2008 MacBook Pro that failed 3 times in 5 months of ownership. Thankfully, I have an external Wifi card that will last me through this semester.
