      The update is only 136 mb for my iMac and 321 mb for my MacBook Pro.

      Wierd, that's kind of a big difference.

      I dont know if this has happened to anyone else, but after the update on my macbook, my desktop is locked up. I cant open up any of the folders or files on my desktop. i can still cmd click and my dock still lets me launch apps.

      Installed on my MBP with no issues took a couple of minutes at most.

      Noticed Time Machine seems much faster now. I've got an external hard drive plugged into an airport extreme (iDisk).
