Just upgraded my 2.5.3 Mini and all went well. Took about 20 minutes start to finish.

One thing I wish is that these updates would NOT reinstall all the language files that painstakingly removed previously.

Forgot to mention I used the Combo Update downloaded from Apple.

Installed on my Mac Mini Server (converted to desktop use) and all is well. I decided today to stripe the drives as a RAID and have noticed a nice pickup in speed. Very glad I have an external that I use as a clone and Time Machine. Smile

Gotta love these minis.

So, who's going to tell us?: does Safari seem snappier or not? Smile

OpenGL performance is way up after this update. Even a simple Xbench test shows 75.20 with 10.6.2 verses 121.80 with 10.6.3. So there is some snappy on that front!

I'm having trouble with Chrome after updating. For example, I can't play the embedded guided tour videos for the iPad on Apple's site. I get audio, but no video.

I ran a lot of xbench tests

my intel 80gb ssd internal went from 185 to 215!

My raid 0 2tb went from 162 to 185!

The update has speed stuff up a lot.

CNET's MacFixIt reporting some minor issues with upgrades.

I'm going to sit this one out for a while. I cannot afford to lose my Mac this close to final exams.

Safari actually feels slower to me. I also had SU crash on me tonight while while trying to grab the iTunes update. I don't think 10.6.3 and me are off to a good start.

Safari seems to run slower on my MB Pro (very slow), and at times pages come back with errors. It's not my router, because I reset it already and tried an other computer. ...maybe it's not due to the update. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yeah, I have the same thing going on with an older 2.4GHz MatteBook Pro. I don't know what's going on.

Back it up dude. Smile

I think I'll do a full backup, then give the update a try.

After I saw how large it was through Software Update, I downloaded the Combo directly from Apple. Download time was about 15 minutes, install around 5 minutes. Haven't noticed anything untoward.
