Slow dock?

    This isn't a huge problem, but I was curious as to why this is!

    My friend got his MacBook in September of last year, and I got my MacBook in May of this year.

    Mine has a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo processor, and his has a 2Ghz Core 2 Duo processor.

    We both have the same amount of RAM, as well.
    (Mine came with 2GB, his came with 1GB.)

    His HD is much more filled than mine is, as well.

    The question is: Why does his dock go so much faster than mine?

    When I scroll the mouse over his dock, it goes much faster than mine-- magnification and flow-wise.

    Our settings are the same, but he has many more icons on his dock.

    Anyone know why his responds faster, even though mine is considered a "better" computer?

    Could be an issue with your graphics driver, or the way the OS is accelerating graphics. Hows your expose, switching spaces etc?

    My expose and spaces run well, but his run faster than mine, too! :(

    But don't the newer MacBooks come with better graphics cards?

    Thanks for responding so quickly, by the way! :)
