    I have iMac 24" 2.16 with 2GB RAM, this days I decided to upgrade from tiger to leopard and guess what... it took me 4 hours to complete installation, also it tooks about 2 1/2 hours to install adobe cs3... has anybody meet with this problem? I also have MacBook Pro and everything is like 10 times faster...

    Any ideas?

    Have you checked the hard drive?

    Try xBench for benchmarking your drive read/write speed.

    Or have you got a DVD with data on it, and could copy some files to your hard drive, to see if the the DVD drive is faulty?
