    Is it me or does everything seem slower using mountain lion? Safari seems a step or two slower then normal. Opening of applications seems a step or two slower. I would like to know if its just me. I am running an Mid 2011 iMac.

    Thanks,
    Hwilensky

    I am using the base model mid 2010 MacBook pro 15 and to me it seems faster than lion, but I am using a slow external USB hd

    I did a clean install and everything is so much snappier imo.

    Always backup your hard drive before doing it, but do a clean install and copy your data back over, or you can repartition your hd to 2 partitions, copy your data to the second one and keep the other on with only your apps and os

    EDIT: btw, doing a clean install will definitely make it faster

    Same here. Everything seems like it requires a little more wait time to open.

    It's nothing very noticeable though.

    Macbook in sig. To me, everything seems to load faster.

    Same here. Everything is loading really slowly. I now regret not doing a clean install.

    I may do one tomorrow if it doesn't improve.

    I seriously doubt there was any "optimization" in ML to speak of. If anything, it should be a little more bloated but nothing you'd notice. Therefore the underlying OS components shouldn't be any faster than Lion.

    And those of you that did a clean install and say it's faster... well, I say, it should be.

    And "duh".

    I only updated, not a clean install and it's working great.

    Ditto, except for the fact I upgraded.
    Faster(not a ton, but faster), smoother, and just all around better.
