    I always thought it took a long time to open applications on my macbook, for example on safari it jumps at least 10 times before opening. I really noticed the problem when I went to the apple store today and played with the macbooks and noticed that most of the apps open on 1 or 2 bounces. Is there something wrong with my computer or are the ones in the apple store just really fast.
    Thanks

    if you own a macbook that takes that long it must be a 512mb of ram version you have there -

    try repairing permissions or maybe rebooting - but get more ram if poss - that does not always mean quicker just you can have more open :)

    yea i got mine in november, but it still doesn't seem like it should take that long. What do you mean by repairing permissions?
