    Hello. I am new to the mac world and this past Sunday, I purchased the new 27" i7 model. I am running a cable internet feed, running at . On Sunday and Monday, I was noticing no problem with surfing speeds at all; however this evening surfing really slowed down. I have both Safari and Firefox, yet both are slow; safari seems to take along time to load. Like I said I am new to a mac; so I am wondering if anyone can lend me a hand or any ideas????

    Thanks

    Surfing is slow... what exactly do you mean? Pages don't load? Graphics load slowly? Or are you slow to connect to sites? Have you eliminated problems that may be centered around your internet connection, ISP or router? You must isolate your problem area before we can diagnose.

    Sorry..... I have tested internet speed via provider tests and I am running extremely high speed range. What is happening is that my brower windows do open up, but it takes several seconds for a page to load up; whether or not it is very graphical. Just seems strange because Sunday and Monday, this thing was blazing fast even with multiple windows open; but now it is very slow with one brower window open. And my docked apps seem to be running very well....

    Have you tried rebooting? I've had a few quirks with my i7 that shouldn't require a reboot but it has fixed them all. I've actually had to reboot it more than my Windows machine.

    have you updated all the software? 10.6.2 seemed to have fixed all slowdown problems.
    Others who have experienced slowdown problems with the new iMacs found that they were fixed by doing a fresh install of SL using the restore discs that came with the machine. I'd try that otherwise.

    No, it hasn't, and especially the performance of wireless connections is still completely unacceptable in OS X 10.6.2.

    I did a software update and I am running 10.6.2; it only added a update to safari.....

    I have noticed that the slow down to the browers is really bad whenever I am downloading anything. I was really impressed with the speed the last two days and frankly VERY impressed but now I wonder what is up; I hope I didn't clutter something up or messed something up.

    I also only have Safrai ( single window ) , firefox ( 2 windows ) and finder running......

    Thanks for any help.

    I am not trying to as a doubt question, so bare with me. But what is reloading the SL?? Is that the complete reload, and will I lose all my apps??

    Thanks again...

    Sounds like a DNS issue. Google OpenDNS and put those settings in.

    Put what settings in where? I too am experiencing what the OP is talking about - my connection speed right now is 19360 kbps, but if I load a new page it either takes forever or I have to hit refresh.

    sorry for being unclear, yes people have had a good experience completely reinstalling snow leopard.
    You will lose everything you have installed since you got your computer.
    I had assumed that as it was fairly new you shouldn't have any difficulty...
