Hey guys, my 2010 Macbook pro (specs are 2.4ghz intel core 2 duo, 4gb ram, NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB, and 250gb HD, basically its stock) This has been happening for maybe a few months, and I just now bothered to try and see what's causing this. It gets the loading skinny rainbow wheel a LOT, even when doing basic tasks. I can't give a million examples, but it happens randomly... say for instance I have iTunes open and will open Safari and browse to a website (nothing crazy), it will pause/hang for a few seconds then resume. This is VERY annoying. I have tried repairing permissions , etc.. and it still does it. I ran a basic hardware test from my CDs and it came back clear... Is it possible my ram or HD is going bad?? It never used to act this way - it was fine for the year I bought it, and I even just upgraded to Lion to see if it'd help, it doesn't. Anyone have any suggestions? I'd appreciate it!
