Hi everyone... I desperately need help here!!! My macbook is only less than a year old, I can't remember the specs of it but I am sure it is pretty much the latest and most powerful Macbook Pro we can find in the market right now... Unfortunately, I have no idea why is it so lag while i'm using programs. Especially working on Microsoft powerpoint and microsoft word programmes. I am using the Mac OS, so it can't be a windows programme. I am currently compiling a project due next week and I'm transferring and sizing pictures previously compiled on a word document (it wasn't lag that time). But right now, it lags so bad that evertime i size my image or copy the image into a word document, it lags very badly and the spinning rainbows occur everytime. I even have to resize the image twice just to get the desired size. the lag happens whenever I insert something new into the document, but not when I'm typing. I have no idea what is happenning, my HD space is 30G of free space, 70G in use. I also checked for background programmes but there is no problem about my memory usage. So why is it lag? if its not HD space and memory space, my OS is up-to-date but why lag! i need to work fast!!!! =( help!!
