My macbook pro (mid 2009) started running very slow this past month. It would take 3 minutes just to load my email or Word. I wiped everything and reinstalled the operating system (I'm still using Leopard). I ran all the diagnostic tests and nothing is wrong. Even after the reinstall, my computer is very slow, even with no files of my own on the computer. Can it be fixed or is it time for a new computer?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
