My mac pro (specs in sig) has recently been really quite slow. Opening Safari and Adium and iTunes all at once causes repeated beachballs, as does opening new tabs, switching back and forth from expose' etc. I use onyx and take very good care of my equipment, but am admittedly tech-lame about how to speed it up. It also hangs in photoshop quite a lot, and although the files are large (1-5GB) it seems to do so overly much. My own thoughts lend me to think that I need to purchase another harddrive to use a scratchdisk, but I'm not really sure. Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge can help me out, I'd be happy to provide any more information needed. Its just frustrating that my extremely expensive computer hangs on such simple tasks that my 5 year old crap laptop flys through. Thanks in advance.
