I have  a Macbook 13" Mid 2010. Earlier I was using Snow leopard and later I have upgraded it to Mountain Lion. After the upgradation, my Macbook has become very slow and sometimes totally unresponsive.


Please assist.

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

Although the specs for Mountain Lion say it will run on 2 GB of ram, you really need 4 GB to run well.  You can look at Launchpad > Utilities > Activity Monitor to see the memory usage with software open.  If there are a lot of page swaps, in and out, you need more memory.


Good sources are OWC and Crucial for guaranteed compatible memory.

Age with Ralph, 2 GB isn't enough to run ML comfortably. Have a look at this page about how to use activity monitor
