I want to download a movie but it takes ages. How do I make my notebook faster?

    It sounds as if you've a slow Internet connection rather than a slow MacBook Pro... does your Internet Service Provider guarantee a certain download speed (e.g., with my Bright House account, I have the 'lightening' package with 60Mbps guaranteed download speed).

     

    You can (sort of...) test your speeds at http://www.speedtest.net/ (although I find that my ISP's local server gives me the truest values).

     

    Test your speed and call back.
