third day with my air, and i love it so far. but one thing has jumped out at me as i transfer files from my old MBP wirelessly: the finder is almost completely crippled when files are transferring in over wifi. i thought it was my imagination at first, but i've confirmed. even other finder windows unaffected by the transfer are SUPER slow to respond. i've gotten to the point where i just do something else while files are transferring because it's too frustrating to do anything in finder.

since i've never experienced this before, i'm wondering if it's a consequence of flash memory, or if something is wrong. any input would be appreciated.
