Slow Macbook Air - When in school
One of my teachers has a Macbook Air that she uses both at home and when in school. At home it's a lightship and logs on and runs as smooth and fast as it was designed to. In school it's an absolutely frustrating donkey. She called me down to have a look at it this morning - it had been powered on for 10 minutes and all that was happening was a blue screen with a movable mouse arrow on it. Removing the battery - waiting a minute or so - plugging in an external storage disk she uses then powering on got it to her desktop but everything on it is SLOW. Trying to launch Safari for example was a complete frustration and I have come back to my office to post this before going back to see if it's actually opened it. It's running on Wireless with a full signal.

I'd be looking at DNS and failed attempts to access Apple webservers in the proxy logs (but it's early and I may be misremembering/mixing up with IOS).
What do the logs say?

Is she logging into the domain on it at school? Could be some of the AD settings aren't ideal - things like Force local home directory on startup disk.

cant apple devices have issues with domain that end .local as they use that for something?
might be worth trying it with wifi off and a nic cable and just no network till its booted see if that helps

Yes I would suggest to off the wifi and restart the MBA. Please let us know if the startup is still slow.
