MacBook Air :: Slow Web Browsing With 11.6 Base Model Air?

Dec 16, 2010

I received my 11.6 base model Air today. So far everything has rocked about it except for one thing: web surfing. When it loads up pages it jitters when I scroll or will lag on my input. I'm thinking this could either be my WiFi connection, which is my parent's and I'm not use to these speeds, or if the Air is just not that good for web work.

Jun 23, 2010

How well will CSS run on a new MBP 13" base model?

Also one other random question, would garage band and other sequencing software be alight on it? I want to start editing music on one I've ordered, or use my midi keyboard via USB.

MacBook Pro :: Current 15" MB Pro Base Model Handle Photoshop CS4?

Nov 18, 2009

I have a friend who is looking to buy a new MB Pro 15". Can the base 15" model w/ the integrated NVIDIA video handle Photoshop, or should she go the next step up with the dedicated video card? I am not a Photoshop user, so I don't feel I could give her a credible recommendation.

OS X :: Looking For Software For A New Base Model Mac Mini

Nov 23, 2009

I'm going to get a New base model Mac Mini or a refurbished Mac Mini.

Being a broke college student I'm a little confused on what software I should get.

Should I buy MS Office for the Mac or just run it through Window's?
I have a copy of Window's 7 and MS Office small business for pc.

Is that going to be a pain in the butt to do my homework and manage office files on my Mini if I have to run it through Window's on the Mini?I guess I don't understand what to expect. Is it like dual booting a pc, like how I use my pc with Linux and Windows?

Also what do I do with all my documents, pics, mp3's etc.... when I make the switch?Can I put them on a thumb drive and just transfer them over to the Mac or won't that work?I would prefer to keep my music collection in MP3 format, seeing how it's all been painstakingly ripped using" exact audio copy with lame encoding". There's not much but I'm pleased with the results.but my Sansa clip plays "apple" format anyways I think.Or should I "now that I'm switching to a Mac" start changing formats over to itunes default format and encoding techniques.My PC is old and outdated and would like to eventually phase it out completely.

MacBook :: New MacBook Pro 13" Base Model And Downloaded The Mac App

Jan 10, 2011

I just got home with my new MacBook Pro 13" base model and downloaded the Mac App Store and I am trying to buy some apps. I am trying to buy Chopper 2 for $.99. When I press the "Buy" button an icon shows up on the top left of the screen which looks like its loading. So I proceeded to wait for this "loading" icon to go away, but it doesnt let me buy the app.

MacBook Pro :: Its Very Slow When Browsing?

Apr 5, 2012

The ISP was just out and tested my connection. Any other computers are reaching 15Mbps whereas my Mac is speed testing at 6Mbps (when I'm lucky). There is inconsistency, reaching 0.1Mbps up to 6Mbps. I cannot open up youtube--It defaults to an html layout. Videos don't buffer. I also cannot open up any graphic rich websites. It doesn't take very long for webpages to load but they automatically fail to load the images. It's not an airport issue because the same thing occurs when I'm hooked up to my ethernet cable.

MacBook Pro :: Slow Web Browsing (other Net Functions Seems OK)?

Mar 1, 2012

I've been having intermittent web browsing problems with our mid-2009 MacBook Pro running Lion 10.7.2... our network has an AirPort Extreme with an AirPort Express being the booster router, and the problem seems to have been pretty much only limited to web browsing, that is, other activities like emails, VOIP phones (we use a program called Bria), Skype and iTunes sample streaming seem to have been pretty reliable... I've tried deleting my safari cache.db file as another thread in this forum suggested, and it's a bit too early to tell yet whether that has made a lasting difference, but if it doesn't, does anyone have any ideas about what else might be causing the problem? If it helps, an iPhone 4 on the same home network seems to have significantly better performance when using its web browser.

Hardware :: Using Airport Extreme Base Station (newest Model)?

Nov 29, 2009

I have an airport base station that was setup and working properly in my home office. I change locations within my home and now it will not work correctly. Literally, all I did was unplug and plug everything back in. The internet connection is working fine. I plugged it directly into the computer and it works.

I got frustrated and reset it back to factory defaults and reinstalled it and now it still doesn't work.

I can get the internet to work through the ethernet port, if I set the ip to

However, I cannot get the airport to work at all. I did notice that the ip when it sets it automatically, was a 169 ip.

Mar 30, 2010

Title says it all really, just really slow when firing up safari, wasn't so slow a few weeks ago, not sure if the safari update killed it, or whether it is just the flashy websites killing the CPU, though the usage doesn't look too high, anyone got any other ideas what might be slowing it down, apart from those mentioned above?

IMac :: Ripping Blu Rays - Base Model Sufficient To Play Back?

Aug 10, 2010

So I've never owned a mac computer before but after enjoying my iphone 4 and ipad 3g I think I'm jumping ship from windows. I just have a few questions and I'd appreciate any answers I could get. Will the base model be sufficient for my needs? Mainly going to be web browsing and using it as a media station with iTunes. The only thing I'm not sure of is ripping blu-rays. How long would it take to do a 1080p rip on the base model iMac and would the base model be sufficient enough to play back these rips? I'm currently having issues on my hp laptop even playing back 720p blu-ray rips.

MacBook :: Fast Download Speed But Very Slow Browsing?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm not sure if many others have found this problem but my internet has been suffering recently.

I took a speed test on which stated that my download speed was 9.7mbps which is what I'm paying for, but still my browsing speed is ridiculously slow on all websites.

I've tried using firefox and chrome but they all seem to be having the same problem.

I am connected by ethernet as airport has full connection but can't seem to load anything. I have also tried to configure my ethernet connection manually as i read that this would help the issue.

A coworker asked me to take a look at her Macbook because after the latest Apple update, browsing Yahoo and Google have become unbearably slow. What's weird is that it's only those two websites that are slowed.   

She has a 2008 Macbook with 4GB RAM running Snow Leopard

Software :: Slow Internet Browsing With OS 10.5.7?

Aug 3, 2009

Loading web pages on my Mac Dual G5 is painfully slow, maybe 5-10 seconds to load a popular website (like this one, e.g.).

I'm running Safari v. 3.2.3, but the problem occurs with other browsers like Firefox and Camino.

I also have a Macbook Pro connected by ethernet to same router (Airport), running Safari 4.0.2, and it's just as slow as the desktop Mac.

My ISP is cable and various speed tests show download/upload speeds of 20 Mbps/2 Mbps. I have a PC running Windows Vista on same LAN, connected to same router, and it browses blazingly fast. So the problem is not ISP or modem.

As a lifelong Mac user, I hate to say this, but I'm jealous of my PC!

What could be the issue(s) and fix?

PowePC G5: Dual 2.7 GHz G5; 4 GB DDR RAM; OS v. 10.5.7

Macbook Pro: 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3; 10.5.7

OS X :: Hideously Slow Web-browsing With Airport Extreme?

Jan 25, 2008

I recently replaced my old Linksys router with an Airport Extreme Base Station. And as soon as I did, I began to experience hideously slow web browsing, with pages often taking minutes to load.

I ran various speedtests, but they were all normal.

The problem is browser independent (Safari, Firefox even tried old Camino), and was not fixed by clearing caches, cookies, etc...

After searching the forums and reading about other peoples' similar experiences, I disabled ip6 on my computer (MacPro - 10.4.5), but that didn't help.

I did a hard reset on the router, and on the cable modem. I updated the firmware on the AEBS. No differences. So I reinstalled my old linksys and everything's back to normal (except the wireless isn't as good and it can't seem to handle video chatting in iChat, which the AEBS does fine, so I want to get the AEBS working).

Software :: Web Browsing Is Slow And Computer Hangs?

Sep 27, 2009

I've had my iMac for about a year, and since I first bought it, it hangs on at least 25% of the web page transitions, sometimes for as long as 20 or 30 seconds. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard and it's become even worse. Doesn't matter if I use Safari or Firefox. Also, hanging affects my widgets (such as the weather Radar), but I never lose connection to Skype or Messenger. I've tried resetting both browsers, but I don't think it's a browser issue. It's connected via cable, not wireless. Also, I have my work laptop always connected at home and never have a problem with connectivity. I've lugged my computer to the Apple store.

Software :: Browsing The Internet On PowerBook G4 Is Incredibly Slow?

Feb 21, 2005

Browsing the internet on my PowerBook G4 is incredibly slow.

I have 3 browsers installed (Firefox, Safari and IE) and it's the same for all of them.

I'm on a 512k ADSL broadband connection and using the built in ethernet port. Browsing is slower than on 56k dial up! My housemate is connected via the same router to 2 different PCs and he has no problems.

Strangely, on my mac, email and ftp uploading don't seem especially slow.

Mac Mini :: Is There Noticeable Difference Between 2 And 4 GB On The Mini Base Model

Mar 10, 2009

I'm sitting here thinking I made a mistake by being cheap and just upgrading the base model to 2 GB when virtually everyone else is going for 4 GB... I do realize that this is mainly because most people choose to upgrade themselves, and then there's no point in not installing 4 GB. The thing is that I don't think I would benefit at all from having 4 instead of 2 GB of memory, since I won't be doing any "heavy" work on it whatsoever.

I might use Photoshop now and then, but that's about it, and that works just fine on my current MacBook with 2 GB ram (white 2006 model). Also, my memory usage most often shows that I have 1,2 GB of free memory, which isn't even close to "maxing" it. I've been looking for benchmarks comparing these two configurations, but I couldn't find any. I know that it's quite easy to upgrade it yourself later, but I'd rather avoid it...

IMac :: Quad Core I5 OR Base Model Core I3?

Jul 28, 2010

I know other threads exist, but they don't have responses specific to me so what's the harm in one more?

So, I am going to be selling my late 2008 15" MacBook Pro this week to get a new 27" iMac and I just need some legitimate advice from those "in the know" on processors.

I plan on having this iMac for about 3 years to do the following tasks:

1.) Record and edit HD cable (1080i) from an Elgato EyeTV HD - will include some encoding of 2+ hour sports game recordings

2.) Some light editing of 720p iPhone 4 clips in iMovie

3.) Surf the web, iTunes, iPhoto, Mail, and all the other standard stuff

Assuming budget is an issue, would you recommend me spending the extra money for a Quad Core i5 iMac or would I be ok based on the info above just going with the base Dual Core i3 model?

Like, will there be a considerable difference in the two machines (factoring in processor and graphics card) that will really be worth the extra $300 - $400 for 3 years of use?

OS X :: WiFi Connection - Slow Browsing With Full Bars Signals

May 26, 2009

I'm back at my dad's place for the summer and I'm trying to connect to his house's wireless connection on my MacBook. It seems to connect okay when I type in our 10-digit password next to "WEP 40/128-bit hex" in the drop-down menu, but then even with full signal bars, it loads browser pages very slowly if ever, usually just giving me a timeout error and it's the same thing across all programs, my instant messenger takes forever to connect, WoW takes forever to connect, if ever, basically the internet I get from this connection is useless. It's odd because both my sisters have MacBooks and the internet works fine for them at my dad's house when they connect, and MY internet on my computer works perfectly when I'm using any WiFi but this one. By the way, the transmitter is a "D-Link 514 2.4GHz Wireless Router" and we're connected to cable internet.

* I have tried resetting the router and that didn't help.
* I have tried changing the channel, authentication method and password and that didn't help.
* I tried a DNS troubleshooting guide and it doesn't appear to be a problem with that.

OS X :: Slow Internet Browsing / Safari Or Firefox Taking Long Time

Mar 4, 2009

I've had my MBP for about a year and recently I noticed that when I open Safari or Firefox it takes FOREVER to load a page.Even a small page like Google! I tried a reset for both browsers but that didn't help.I did some maintenance but no help there either.

This is my first Mac so I wanted to ask if I'm missing something.. should I be doing something maintenance-like that I'm not?
