Since upgrading to iLife '11, I've been seeing more beach balls than I'm accustomed to in my whole HP Mini 311 hackintosh journey.
Using iPhoto '11 in full screen mode, though touted by Steve Jobs as its main attraction, is for me a proven source of distraction, and to some extent frustration, when doing casual photo editing. And when I say casual, I mean just some cropping and sepia color tone application routines.
The netbook is of course hindered by its measly Atom N280 processor and I know I shouldn't expect too much. But perhaps I'm pushing this little wonderful machine way beyond its limitations.
