I only ever had rare and random beach-balls (mostly during open file dialogs), installed this update, 2 15-20 seconds stalls in a matter of 5 minutes. This an anti-performance update for me. June 2009, MBP 17", 3.06Ghz/8GB RAM/160GB X-25M G2 SSD

Ever since I bought my mid-2009 17" MacBook Pro (with the 3.06 GHz processor and the 500 GB 7200 rpm-SATA HD) I've had occasional pauses with the spinning beach ball. Frustrating. I'm running Snow Leopard Mac OS X 10.6.1. I downloaded and installed Performance Update 1.0 using Software Update. The problem has disappeared! All is well!

Guys, use the "Troubleshooting" tag instead of "Comment" if you're having problems -- you'll be doing a service to others by warning them of potential issues. And if Apple sees enough of those red "trouble" tags, they might be inclined to produce a fix faster.

This is really annoying now. This package contains IOAHCIFamily.kext, I tried rebuilding the extensions cache, on Snow Leopard, `sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions` will cause the OS to rebuild the cache. Reboot. But after startup, I go through two 20+ seconds pauses. The first pause beach-balls. The second pause, the cursor remains the black pointer. After that, the pauses seem to go away. I am thinking of restoring the old driver from my time machine backup... I guess I should file a bug report with Apple. It never ends anymore.. The transition to the dark side of software is happening. haha. j/k. hopefully Apple can get this worked out (sooner than later). Model: MBP 17-inch (June 2009) 3.06Ghz/8GB RAM/160GB Intel X-25M G2 SSD :(
