    Hi - I just got my new MBP -- 8GB Ram, 256 GB SDD, 2.7 GHz -- and am very disappointed at how slow it is. Things like webpage rendering and loading, application opening, transferring files from disk image to application folder - all slower than expected. Definitely not snappier or faster than my 2009 iMac.

    It's definitely not that my drive is full -- I still have 218 GB left-- and there is nothing on my desktop.

    Anyone have any suggestions or advice? I could, of course, call Apple but I wanted to try here first. Thanks in advance.

    The SSD should make everything you mentioned as slow near instant.

    Something's wrong here.

    Send it back, as we have no idea whether your expectations are reasonable only they can answer this question. Keep in mind that if you have moved from a quad core desktop processor machine to a dual core mobile processor some things will be no faster. But I'll echo above it doesn't sound right to me only CPU bound processors should be an issue.

    I also have an early 2015 13" rMBP with 16GB RAM/512GB SSD/3.1GHz i7 and it's nice and quick. None of the upgrades I have would make it significantly faster than the computer you bought, so if it seems slower than your 2009 iMac something is wrong.

    It's possible that since it's a new machine hence it's consuming a lot of CPU cycles for spot light indexing.

    Hi - I think that Aneef may have been right. Took a couple of days but it definitely sped up. It's a big relief. Thanks for your advice.
