So Slow

Numbers that don't lie: Mac slow, PC fast, via have browser, will travel (which, after a hiatus of about two years, I've finally started reading again).

One of the main reasons why I chose an Apple laptop over a Vaio was because of the battery life and the absolutely phenomenal sleep/resume speeds. Seriously. Close the lid. It goes to sleep. Open the lid. It's awake before you've finished pulling up the lid. This has never worked for me in Windows, XP included (not to the extent that I'd actually trust it enough to send a system to sleep). Being able to just close it at the end of a lecture, stick it in my bag and resume five minutes later is how laptops should work. I don't want to be starting up and shutting down the whole time. I don't want to be waiting while my system state is read from a 512mb file on my HD back into RAM. If Apple can switch to AMD or Intel and keep the same battery life and sleep/wake features on its laptops, then I'll be happy. Last I checked, AMD and Intel mobile processors weren't doing that well in the power consumption stakes.

Yeah, tell me about it! My Intel P3 laptop wont get through a 100 minute DVD on a full charge. I've never gotten more than 3 hours out of it. If Apple had these prices last January, I definitely would have made The Switch.
