    You know that notice by the blank space when you made your thread title? Yeah, listen to it.

    The most logical explanation is that you are not connected to enough people.

    Torrent speeds vary based on the number of seeders. MacBooks use some of the best wireless cards on the market. If it's the same torrent, either she got more people seeding her, is using an ethernet connection, or both.

    While I suffer lower speeds on my MacBook than my pc it's because 99.9% of the time in my opinion. That the pc is hardwired via ethernet to the router, and the MacBook uses wireless which is subject to more degradation of signal, and therefore possible speed loss.

    You should forward the port(s) used by Azerus to your Macbook.
    This is usually done by accessing your router in a webbrowser and configuring through your routers webinterface..

    This can be tricky though if you don't know to do it :)

    3 tips

    1)port forward and trigger
    2)make sure their is many seeders on your torrent
    3)make sure your ISP isn't throttling your bittorrent packets
