Bullet form of issues Freezes and lags at log in. Sometimes it will take 5+ seconds for my typing to appear Lags when typing in safari. I'll get the beach ball for simply typing, like writting this message. It also does this with any word processing program. It doesn't do it EVERY time but it is not rare. When watching a movie it will lag out; the movie will keep playing but I cant pause, minimize, or exit. I'll have to manual reboot. This will also happen when playing simple games. I do use the Thunderbolt port to extend to an additional monitor, but this is not the only time the issue occurs Sometimes it will just lag opening programs or playing songs on Itunes. And I mean LAG I don't mean the seek time for the hard drive Side info, I have 4gigs, not upgraded, of ram that I monitor and I've never seen it use 95%. I do have programs running in the back ground, but, as said, I'm constantly monitoring the activity monitor. I am very frustrated with this computers performance and considering my options. Seems like multitasking stretches the limits of its capabilities. Questions: If I take it to Apple are they going to be able to help me? I've been a tech before and I know how much guess work goes into an issue like mine and I REALLY dont wont all my programs and files dug through and scrutinized. I dont trust Apple when it comes to my privacy. Please help me, I really want to like my Mac but an HP Envy is really starting to tempt me.
