    My early 2011 MBP have started to run really sluggish within the last couple of months.

    watching youtube videos in fullscreen with no other application than chrome open will put cpu temp to over 90° C and GPU around 85°.. i had to buy one of those laptop air cooler to stop the computer from overheating and shutting down.

    i have checked the vents inside the machine runs and cleaned them from dust, but that didnt do it.. i have updated to the latest os and it still runs like half the computer it was when i bought it..


    also note, i use a 128gb ssd from apple with around 20gb of free space and i upgraded to 16gb ram.

    can anyone confirm if these stats are normal? and does anyone have any ideas what to do?

    How exactly is your MBP running slow? Only when using Crome or also when starting up programs and booting ?
