    I don't know what it is but I experience lots of slow downs. I haven't started doing anything on the MBP just web browsing and iChatting. But it can be so laggy I dont understand. I had a Blackbook, WhiteBook and never had any of these slow down problems.

    What should I do? It's usually when I run Safari and Firefox.

    Elaborate a bit more. What sort of slowdowns? What happens? Beachball or just sluggish?

    Yea sluggish. Like somtimes it will just freeze for a few seconds, cant force quit anything or nothing. Dock doesn't work and it will come back.

    I'd take a wild guess and say the Hard drive is giving you grief. Experienced similar problems a few days before my MBP HDD failed.

    Put the old hard drive in and see if the problem is still there? I'm afraid a trip to the Apple store won't be of much use, unless the problem is easy to replicate.
