Hi everyone,

I have a 15" MacBook Pro Unibody (late 2008 model). I have Snow Leopard and don't really notice a huge difference in way of performance. Someone told me it was because I need to activate the 64-bit capabilities? Is this true? And if so, how do I do this?

Cheers
QUOTE Thanks

Read the 64-bit link ("64-bit and Snow Leopard – What 64-bit means for you") in my signature. That should hopefully answer all of your questions/concerns.
