    So here's my XBench results:

    http://db.xbench.com/merge.xhtml?doc1=561156

    What is going on here? I check my harddrive in the disk utility, no problems there. I have 250GB free or so, and my computer is only using 2-3% of memory/CPU. But even surfing the web or typing gets laggy. Youtube videos and typing .. forget about it.

    I feel like there could be a problem with the computer running off the slower processor??

    Thoughts?

    Tried Geekbench yet?

    It seems, the HDD is very slow:
    Have you tried AJA System Test or Xbench* yet to benchmark your HDD?

    That I can see from your link, thus my question about Geekbench and pure HDD benchmarks.

    That is in the ballpark for that Mac.

    What about the disk benchmarks? What does AJA System Test report?

    And when you checked Activity Monitor, did you like shown below?

    Or is it possible the primary processor is not kicking on?
