My 2011 Macbook Pro with 2.3 GHz i7, 8gb of ram and an OWC Mercury SataII SSD in the optical bay and a 500 GB Seagate (Momentus I think, it's been a while since I installed it. The one with the 4gb SSD in it) HDD in the hard drive bay. Recently it's been taking a long time to access menus, things haven't quite been going right. Audio inputs don't seem to be showing up consistently in the volume icon although my interface is able to detect that Pro Tools is running, or at least that it is plugged in to the computer. Now it's taking up to a minute to switch between tabs, it looks as if it's taking a REALLY long time to load or to start loading, like it's trying to mount a disc and failing. What could this be? Once things START to load they seem to be extremely snappy, but they hang again when I use another app for a bit. Will Apple even help me out here? I did purchase the extended Apple care... But I ended up deciding later that I needed the extra onboard storage as well as the SSD just wasn't enough. I'm guessing that puts me out of luck with my warranty?
