MacBook White 13'' 2009 Runs Better with Windows

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Okay, I have a MacBook White 13'' Late 2009 Model. I have installed Mavericks 10.9. The MacBook has 4GB of RAM and SSD installed. Whenever I run Football Manager 14 and Chrome with 3 tabs open the MacBook runs really slow. In Chrome I can't even scroll down a page. But when switch to Windows the MacBook runs perfect. Photoshop open, Football Manager 14 open, Chrome open and everything is smooth. Why is this happening? Should I switch back to an older version of OS X?

Latest update for Mavericks already installed. I think it's Football Manager that's causing all the problems. I see on the Activity Monitor it's CPU load is 150%! On windows runs smoothly though.

I noticed that mavericks is sluggish on Core 2 Duo machines!!

Works fine on core i-series though!!

it may be insufficent memory. have a look at activity monitor. if your mac needs to use swap, it will slow down really bad. mavericks 10.9.3 runs well on my hackintosh with t7100 core2duo and 4gb but i don't play games with it ;)

 

mavericks uses 3,6 gb in idle for me (airserver + apache running)
