I've had my MacBook since 2006 [and absolutely love it].

I began to upgrade the operating system over the last year and now have Lion OS 10.7.3.

The overall speed is very slow now - even just OfficeMac programs like Excel - opening programs/apps and delays when typing emails or Word docs [even this message....].

Any basic changes I can make [more RAM, etc] without buying a new computer?


Processor = 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory = 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM

MacBook (13-inch Late 2006), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
