Hello. I'm a new member here and I have a question. I did do a quick search before posting my question below but was unable to find what I was looking for. My apologies if it has been covered before. First some background. My name is Jeff and I recently purchased a MacBook Air 13" 128GB. I've owned a first gen iMac. I currently own a iPad, a iPod Classic 80 GB, and a iPod touch. I live in Colorado and use Comcast cable internet. Recently we've had some problems with internet speeds. I decided to go to speedtest.net and test our internet speed. I was troubled to see how slow our connection was. Under 10 and sometimes under 5. The trouble seemed to be only on Saturdays. After many tests w/ speedtest.net I decided to compare the MacAir to my wife's PC. I was a bit surprised to see the PC get more than double the speed of the Mac. After comparing speeds with some other peeps on another forum I frequent it seems the MacAirs and iPads download information much slower than PCs and full blown Macs. My question is: Does flash drive memory download information slower than the traditional hard drives found on PCs and larger Macs? Thanks for the help and again I apologize if this subject has been covered before. I look forward to participating on the forum.
