So I bought my MBP 2.4Ghz just last week, and since then I've noticed a significant decrease in speed. The dock and other animations are choppy and shutdown is taking much longer. After skimming the GeekBench thread and finding the average score for my model to be around 3200, I decided to benchmark my own machine. It got a 1127 -- barely faster than my old G4 . What could have caused this, and what actions should I take to remedy it? Help would be much appreciated I did upgrade my memory to a GeIL 4GB kit -- compatible by specification and also user reviews, though I do wonder as GeIL also sells a separate line of memory chips labeled specifically for Mac.
