    What are you doing with it?

    What OS version are you running?

    Which model is it?

    How much RAM do you have?

    How big is the HDD and how much free space is there on it?

    Have you verified / repaired your HDD in Disk Utility?

    Have you repaired Permissions?

    Have you performed a PRAM or SMC reset?


    The devil's in the details...

    Hi there, I have the same question as above and figured I'd respond with answers to your questions and see if you can help at all. I only use my MacBook Pro for emailing, downloading some photos, music and Pages or Keynote docs, nothing else really fancy. I have noticed overall it's gotten slow, especially when starting applications. I wanted to see if there are things I can do to speed it up, like clearing out stuff that might slow it down etc.??


    Details  - Mac OS X version 10.5.8, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB 1067 MHz DDR3, I believe I have 102.33 GB available if that makes sense, and my answer is no to all the other questions you asked. If you need me to look up anything els just le me know how.

    You may well do better posting in the Leopard (10.5) Forums as this is the Lion (10.7) Forum. You will get more specific attention there.
