Hi everyone! I have a 2010 Macbook Pro with the Intel Core i7, 8gb ram memory, and the 500mb hard drive. My OS version is up to date (10.6.8). I am an animation student, and bought this not so cheap laptop to run Autodesk Maya 2011 and Photoshop CS5. When I run Maya, (even with no other program running) it has a tendency to lag with clicking and actions. I do not use safari, I use Firefox. My hard drive has 349 gb available. Any suggestions to help my Macbook run faster? Thank you in advance!
