    You do realise that your download speed has (unless your machine is hella slow) nothing to do with your machine right?

    [​IMG] How does this have anything to do with you being on a mac? Why did you even think it would matter what you're using?

    When I ran a duel boot of Vista and XP on this machine a while back. XP got 3.5 MB down, while vista got 6.5, 6.5 was what my other wired machines got and this machine was wireless. I think it was a driver issue for the wireless card because the PC came with Vista by its self.

    1MB which is my download speed cap for my internet. That is using torrents though, it's half that using HTTP downloading straight from a website.
