Hi fellow Mac lovers. Was hoping you could help me out with this strange issue.. So today for Christmas I got my mum a new MBP, and for some reason, on the new machine, the internet is much, MUCH slower, so much so that it's not even possible to stream music via airplay. Specs and speedtest results of both machines below..

Old MBP specs. Old Speedtest result.

New MBP specs. New Speedtest result.

Does anyone have ANY idea why this is happening? Have the wifi protocols or something changed for new MBPs? It's the exact same wireless network, and the machines have been placed next to each other - so I really don't understand what the problem could be.

Please help!
