    Hi everybody.

    This is my first message.

    I just switched to mac last week. I am really happy. I love it.

    everything is so easy and fast.

    I can't believe how fast it is. and you don't hear mbp working at all. I don't why people complain about it. the fan makes a little noise when working with hd stuff, etc.


    what I realised.

    When I connected and started transferring from my external hard disk to the mac, mbp got little bit slow. I mean the reactions started to be late. a program which can be opened in a second has started to work in 7 or 8 seconds.

    It is not a big deal but I am just wondering. and I am kinda obsessive user.

    Is anyone experiencing this. Is it normal ?

    I must add that While I was uploading too many stuff to mac, I was watching Avatar in blu ray. no problem working apps. I wouldn't do this on pc.

    Only opening apps for the first time is kinda later.

    Also, doing fancy touch pad moves are kinda late. not so bad, but not so smooth as usual

    There is no problem at all now.

    I guess it was happenning because I was doing time machine back up for the first time and I was on battery.

    now, even on battery everything so damn fast and smooth.

    happy ;)

    Backing up is very hard drive intensive, the hard needs need to seek the files, read them,and then transfer them over USB or firewire.

    Now where are apps located? You got it, on the hard drive, you're asking it to do double duty, so of course it'll get slower.

    It would definitely help. But once you get to maxing out the SATA connection, you're back to square one :cool:

    sorry it is bluray rip. a movie file around 5 gb. Fantastic quality.

    My PC was like a hair dryer when I was opening it.
