    Hi Devs,

    2 days ago i bought a new Macbook Pro 13" (Mid-2012). The same have been loaded with corsair vengeance 2x8 gb RAM & 240gb of corsair neutron gtx SSD.

    but i'm hard to find the performance with the above upgrades.
    i) copying a 2gb file is taking around 4 min
    ii) shutdown takes too much time
    iii) poor battery life

    MBP is loaded with 10.8.3, TRIM enabled.

    can anybody advise any tweaks / option for a better performance.?

    thanks in advance. :)

    Point #1 could be anything and requires more sleuthing.

    Point #'s 2 and 3 are 10.8.3 related - particularly the shut down bug. You need to define your subjective term of "poor" in #3).

    i: As stated previously, this could be anything. Are you using your USB 3.0 port? With what are you transferring? You could very well likely be bottle-necked by something else, and not by the MBP.

    ii: How much is "too much"?

    iii: Again, you're being subjective. What is "poor"?

    With regards to ii (2) and iii (3), you need to be more definitive. Which applications are you running consistently (frequently and on a everyday basis)? What does your normal task set look like?

    I put 16GB in my 2012 MBP and it's very quick. Especially when editing photos with several software titles open.

    I've still got a standard HDD in there as I'm waiting for the 500GB SSD drives to drop slightly more before I purchase them. This appears to be what's slowing me slightly.

    I use an app to run maintenance scripts on my MBP every week or so. That makes a noticeable difference to performance.

    Might want to disable that and see what happens.
