Stumped with Macbook Air 2013

Okay can anyone with experience with this setup give a little insight please?

I have:

2013 Macbook Air i7 1.7 / 8gb/ 256SSD


PT 9.0.6

So when I load a VI, for instance Mini Grand, I begin to play but its hiccuping. I mean the audio is cutting in and out and delayed.

However, check this out. When I do play a line, I can duplicate that track like 20 times with 20 instantiations of the VI, and it doesn't hiccup at all.

When Im in 48/24, its worse. When I downscale to 441/24 I can get some decent recordings.

My 2010 i7 MBP never had issue with any of this, but could not handle 20 VI's like this little 2013 MBA.

Any clues?

All software updates with apple and PT current.

Yes, I am recording on the main drive also. The old MBP had no issue. Is it a SSD problem?

First thing that popped into my head was, does PT9 support Mountain Lion?
