itunes 8.2 Mac vs. PC

Recommended Posts

OK, I got my whole library consolidated on a new 1.5TB Seagate which is working well (knock wood, given the rather wretched reviews on Newegg and Amazon). Thanks to those who offered help.


It sits on an Airport Extreme base station. I loaded the whole thing (53000 tracks) on my wife's white Macbook and my Lenovo T61 (which have pretty much the same hardware spec, dual core 2.0Ghz, 2 GB ram). First up was the Macbook, which took on the order of an hour plus or minus 20 minutes. Then the Lenovo. It took over 8 hours! 8.1 was much quicker (though doing it a piece at a time). Media Monkey on my old Thinkpad T40 (1.5 Mhz Pentium, 768 MB ram) took an hour and a half plus or minus. Any idea what gives?
