    Finding that my 2015 Macbook Pro 13" (force touch) that is only 6 months old has progressively been slowing down since new. Evidence of this includes:
    * Boot times of the VMware Fusion Windows 10 instance which takes longer than usual and IO with the native OS seems slower (e.g. file saves)
    * Loading times for native applications such as Office, Gimp are noticeable slower
    * Boot times with the native OS are only ever so slightly slower

    I have a 1TB SSD installed in the Macbook Pro that is at 30% capacity. I have 16GB of RAM and can't see that being an issue. I can't see anything in Activity Monitor that is hogging resources. I do have Sophos Anti-Virus installed but have excluded the VMware Fusion file directory.

    Any ideas on what might be causing the laptop to slow down? Or is this normal?

    macintosh doesn't need antivirus, agree with ^

    your machine is dual core...all that ram won't change that. maybe you need 4 cores for your work?

    just install an ad blocker in safari to block malicious ads (uBlock is good)
