    Is there a way to defrag a MacBook (or any Mac for that matter)?

    Nope; Macs can defrag themselves.

    That's not entirely true. OSX will defragment small file, (20mb and under)

    Make sure volume Journaling is on by using Disk Utility. It will keep fragmentation to nearly non-existent.
