So my mom bought a refurb 15" Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro to replace her aging 1 GHz 12" PowerBook G4. She keeps complaining about how slow it is, and I admit it doesn't feel too snappy when I use it. I've only had a short time on it though, but she claims it is "slower than the old one". While she's happy with the screen size upgrade alone, she would like the machine to be fast. I figured going from 768 to 1 GB of RAM and a 1 GHz G4 to dual 2.16 should be a HUGE difference... Now, I should note that she does run Photoshop 7 (Rosetta) and Microsoft Word. But even when she's not, it doesn't feel as fast as my Core Duo MacBook. We used the Migration Assistant. Could this be the culprit? (it even migrated the OS 9 system folder, lots of legacy stuff) Could it be a bad refurb? Any suggestions to speed it up are welcome.
