    Just bought a new macbook tonight (aluminum) and transferred everything from my old macbook to the new, took a while but it all worked fine. First thing i went to do on the new macbook was software update and their were 12 things to update! ok makes sense, i decided to only do 4 right now.. iTunes, iPhoto, security, and java script... It is taking forever though!!!! its iTunes that is holding it up. When i say forever i mean its been updating the past 40 minutes.. it's downloading 65.4mb worth of itunes. does it just have a few updates to do is that why its taking so long? pretty normal i hope?? thank you for your help

    A lot of application updates on a Mac involves downloading the entire program again, regardless of how much or how little is going to actually be updated (in fact it's actually the same with iTunes for Windows, too). It's usually only OS updates that download just the update files and install them where they're needed.

    It's perfectly normal.
