So I was in the Apple Store today killing time before a haircut appointment and I wanted to test drive the new Macbooks as I'm trying to convince my sister to go Mac with a Macbook. So I check "About this Mac" to make sure they've got the x3100's on display and not the old ones. This particular (black) model happend to have 2 gigs of memory in it. Ok. So, I decide to simultaneously open iMovie 08, iPhoto, and iDVD at the same time to test the responsiveness, and to see how well the iDVD theme preview looked when entering Expose. The Macbook became unresponsive for a while, beachball, and I didn't bother with Expose. Opened up Activity monitor and noticed two services not responding. One was "Clip Render Service" and the other one I can't remember. Hmm... Odd. So I try the same thing on the black Macbook next to it. Sure enough - same thing happened. Same two responsive services. Do you think this a standard problem or is it just because the Apple Store Macs are loaded up with all kinds of "rich media" junk???? Can someone test this out on their new Santa Rosa Macbook and report your results??? I'd hate to hear my sister bitch at me because I convinced her to go Mac and she got a shoddy Macbook. Thanks.
