I just purchased my MacBook Pro from a friend and it has started lagging.  He is a gamer, so I know he has taken really good care of it.  It has:

 

750 G HD (555 free)

2.4 Ghz Intel Dual Core processsor

8G Ram

 

I checked the CPU usage and closed all applications to be sure there wasn't anything running wild.

Restarted it

Changed the energy saver option to better performance instead of battery life.

 

I know resetting the permissions is prob the first suggestion and I am waiting to get the startup disk from him.

 

Any other ideas?  I just can't see any other ideas why it would be running slow, everything looks good, maybe I'm missing something.  Thanks for your help!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
