I have a brand new 3.06 (2009 edition) iMac. The big flagship iMac. I have a 2 year old Sony Vaio All-In-One PC with Vista Home Premium. The PC takes forever to boot, shut down, you name it. I have Safari 4 on both computers. Here is the kicker. The Sony is a 1.7 ghz dual core with 2 GB of Ram. New iMac is 3.06 ghz and 4 Gb of Ram. Once loaded and the history and cache cleared on both browsers. If you type a website in on both browsers and hit the enter key at the same time for both, the PC ALWAYS loads the page faster. By several seconds sometimes. The iMac is fast, but Safari on the PC is like a bullet fast. It takes 15 seconds to load Safari, but once loaded it is like a bullet. Safari loads in under a second on the iMac, but surfing is not as fast. Both computers are pulling from a Apple Airport Wireless Base Station in Wireless N(B&G compatible mode). This seems backwards. Safari seems to hesitate on the iMac while loading pages at times when the PC is ripping through loading files. The iMac smokes the PC in anything else. Something wrong??? Norman Ross Jr.
