Hello everyone,

I've been using my new 2011 macbook pro for the last few months and I have to say I am confused. The only reason I brought a new computer was because my wife's HP finally died and we decided for her to take the old 2009 macbook pro and I buy a new since I use it a lot more.

I expected a lot but both man is the new 2011 slower than my old one and the battery does not last no where near as long. I don't get it. Both have a 500 gig hard drive and both have 8 gigs of ram. The 2009 is a 2.5 core duo and the 2011 is a 2.2 core i7. Both are also running lion but overall everything opens lighting quick on the 2009 compared to the newer one. Heck I get the spinning wheel quite a bit on this computer compared to the old.

So my question is, What the heck and how can I fix this?

John

Give the "Beachballs" link in my signature a read. Also realize that a "bad" hard drive can also cause what you're describing. Yes I know that it's a new computer...but anything can happen with hard drives (old or new).
