is the normal cause of the spinning colored wheel along with an over full HD.
Ive been using my aunts macbook (1.83 core duo 512mb 667 ram, OS X 10.4.10) for a short time and Ive noticed (among other macs Ive used) that they are so unresponsive to my requests! I would have to say that I have seen the spinning umbrella a lot when doing ordinary things on the macbook, but it seems so slow and unresponsive!
I personally have a dell laptop with a pentium M 2.13 cpu and it runs much faster than this macbook. I know my notebook is faster in ghz, but this macbook has two cores, so it should multi task much better)
I would like to know why macs are so slow! Is it the OS? Ram? Something? This is something that would prevent me from buying a macbook because of its inability to respond quickly without halting or freezing a lot. Are there programs that allow me to tweak the performance settings on a mac to speed it up faster?
Like I said, if this could be fixed, I would consider buying a mac, but they are to sketchy is responsiveness at the moment.
