I've been importing some CDs on my MacBook today (2Ghz, Core 2 Duo), and I'm quite surprised to find that it is considerably slower than on my four-year(!) old Dual G5.

When the import begins (using the Apple Lossless-codec) the speed is as slow as 4-5X, and toward's the end it's around 11-12X.

However, my G5 is flying away at 20X (at least) when it reaches the end of the disk.

Anyone know why the gap is so big? Has so little happened in four years?

I have the Superdrive called MATSHITA UJ-857D, and a 5400RPM 120GB harddisk.
