Even after upgrading to the latest version, I still have problems with this. I get the beach ball quite often, mostly in Safari. It's weird, since Snow Leopard didn't give me the beach ball much at all... Garageband is slowwww to open. It's overall pretty sluggish. Can anyone help me? I have a Late 2009 MacBook with 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and 2 GB of RAM. Snow Leopard rarely ever gave me the trouble this is giving me. I am not trolling, I just want some help, here. It's worrying me.
