I have been using and enjoying Apple products for little over 4 years now. It started with a PowerBook 12″ with Tiger, which since has been replaced by a (stock) MacBook Pro 13″ and accompanied by an iMac. Each of them great machines. But now I am having increasingly more problems. It started with the MacBook Pro which, since I bought it, randomly stops every so often (sometimes as much as every few minutes) when using any WebKit program (it seems) and beachballs for anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds or so. It frustrates me incredibly and makes me use the laptop less. I hope Snow Leopard would provide relief but it didnt. A lot of suggestions have been made on this issue, but resetting NVRAM and other such tips have had no effect. Now Im stuck with a laptop I can use only frustratingly. The iMac (the 24/2.4/2600 model) has been performing fantastically since I got it over a year ago. But now after upgrading to Snow Leopard, I cant browse the internet with Safari because it crashes every *** two web sites on Flash ads or whatnot. Yes, I could use Firefox or Opera, yes I can use the click to play extension, but I like Safari and this is a defect. So no I have two computers that hang regularly when performing the most basic of tasks. Regardless of the underlying cause, this isnt what I paid or hoped for . Ill be visiting the Apple reseller who sold me the MBP to get it fixed, but the iMac is out of warranty and it looks life a software issue anyhow.
