Hmm... this is kind of bothering me. I have a 17" 2.33 GHz MacBook Pro and it takes a very very long time to start up, and once the desktop comes up sometimes the spotlight logo will come up and it will just sit there for 3 minutes or so before Finder starts (if you roll the mouse over the spotlight logo it will turn into the spinning wheel). What really puzzles me is that I have a 1.8GHz iMac G5 that beats the MacBook in start up easily! What is going on with this thing? How can I speed this up and solve my spotlight issue? --Thanks.
