    figured more than many mac genious' on here... my air has been feeling sluggish for the past few months, fan seems to be running quite a bit more as well.. wondering maybe if can suggest anything to "clean" it up a little..

    i basically only use it for: safari, ichat, mail, and sometimes Cs3 so its not heavily used.. just when i jump on.. sometimes takes a little bit for it to find the wireless network... then safari feels very sluggish at times.. nowhere near when i first bought it.. i had thought about reformatting but i dont want to lose my settings/files... i guess i could buy and backup on external harddrive but for that much work be easier to just get a new air and transfer the stuff over..

    any advice is appreciated.
