I'm on my second 13" MBP i5 2011. The first one I mistakenly feared had heating issues. Upon returning it within the 14-day window, I discovered the first could not be such an anomaly, as the replacement became just as toasty under similar load. For a while, I have suspected the replacement is not as snappy as the first one. It may sound like nitpicking, but certain applications take a jump or two more to open and the stacks don't emerge from the dock with as much aplomb. Currently, I have a 172 MB PSD file open but minimized and the whole system is sluggish and not quite as responsive. It sometimes lags even when switching from one tab on Firefox to the next. The dictionary app which usually pops open takes a few hops and my iTunes tracks skip at times. Is this normal? Does this sound an issue that could be sorted out by an SSD?
