I was curious about something. I got my Mac a little over a month ago, and when I first got it, it was very fast. Navigating all the folders, etc. was speedy and quick, but for the past week or so, there has been noticeable slowdown. I'm not sure if this is normal since I have quite a few more applications installed (probably 10-20 more than factory install) plus I have about 6-7 folders full of fairly big files on my desktop. So, my question is, does OSX normally behave like this? Is there some way I can store my files more efficiently that I may not know about (being a fairly new OSX user)? Does RAM eventually become an issue here (I only have 1GB)? Or should I be worried about my current hard drive/RAM perhaps being faulty? Thanks, I know I may seem fairly paranoid, but when I drop over $2k for a new piece of hardware, I'd like it to run properly (and it's still under Apple's warranty for another month or so).
