I had a c2d 2.16ghz mbp with 2gb ram and 5400 hd for years. Now I bought a new mbp with quad core cpu 2ghz, 8gb ram and 256 ssd. Everything seems ok when I work inside osx enviroment. But I have some things to mention: - Maybe I had great expectations but the 'feeling' I get from the usage of mbp, is that it is fast (a lot faster than my previous machine), but not blazing fast. Am I expecting too much? - Is it normal to wait even 10-15 seconds for the new mbp to go 'sleeping', when my old machine slept instantly(2 seconds max)? - Why it takes so long to load the osx? Well, it is about 30 or 40 seconds, with the login screen. I thought I could go inside osx in a few seconds. I have to say that i migrated my old osx preferences with 'migration assistant' tool. Also I have all the latest software updates installed (10.6.7 for new mbp etc). Before doing the migration, I have to admit that osx of the new mbp load in 10-15 seconds! Why this does not happen now? Is it supposed to use a machine without any programs? After all we are not talking about an old dirty ms windows machine who gets slower over time. The reason I post here is because I want to be sure all these things are just normal or telling me if I have to check something or if I did anything wrong. So, what is going on here?
