Hello, and thanks in advance for sharing your mac - insight. My new system is better than I am, so i need help. I just got my new Macbook Pro 13 unibody, 2.53GHz Drive, 8 GB RAM & 256GB solid-state drive. yay! very exciting! (I accidentally got the glossy screen, but sent it to techrestore and they turned around a matte screen replace on it in 1 day! amazing!!) I am upgrading from a g4 powerbook, on which i replaced the drive last year ,and have 8 G Ram in that. I notice that the new macbook pro does not seem to be much faster than my old system, and hangs quite a bit.. when i first turned the macbook pro on, I did not have my old G4 handy (since I lent to someone) so I pointed the new macbook pro to my superduper backup on my seagate, which seemed to work fine and transferred over my apps and data. By pointing my new macbook pro to my old G4 superduper backup did I do something that means I am not using my awesome new system to its advantage? Is there something about doing that to transfer that has the wrong/old configs or something that might be sticking my old jalopy g4 world on my new tesla macbook pro? I vaguely remember something about 64 and 32 bit choosing when i was setting up my new macbook pro, but i flushed my mental cache on that already... For instance,.. i use quicksilver and some apps just don't open now with QS...also and certain apps just crash when I open them (like handbrake...)..I selected 20 files to open in Illustrator so I could feel the raw SSD power and it took forever...longer than what it would take on my G4. I tried to make a disk image with superduper just now, and the error said said something about 'wrong architecture'... any ideas?
