The first real task aside from browsing that I gave my new Macbook Air was to import 1500 photos into the photo library. I had previously copied them all (approx 5 GB) to a folder on the desktop. The photos started importing as I would expect but about 25% to 50% of the way through things slowed down. When I look at iPhoto I see a new photo about every two-three seconds. The fan kicked on and the computer is not moving very quickly. I checked out the activity monitor, closed other applications... Didn't seem to do a thing. Is this computer just that slow? I'm thinking about trading for a Macbook Pro now, if I decide to keep a Mac. Thanks.
