    Hi everyone,

    My 2011 MBP is starting to run slow and warm. What can I run to check performance and try to speed it back up?

    If you haven't, put an SSD in. They are getting cheaper and it's the biggest thing you can do for your computer's performance.

    I have one in my 2011 15" and it's been a godsend.
