Hi all,

may you can help me or have an idea how I can resolve it.
I'm using a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), 2,4 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3.
Since some weeks the mac hangs up for some seconds and immediately start working in a usual way.
Some times it happens by using the trackpad or the keypad.
The battery health is only 48%.
Any ideas?

Thanks
Sebastian

not easy to tell from here. could be a drive issue. you could try:

resetting the nvram, and the smc (google for your macbook pro model).
reinstall the OS (from recovery; you can google that too).
run the hardware test (i'd try this).

ALWAYS backup your mac before you do anything...

Backup the computer first. Safety first...
Run First aid using Disk utility. Then do other more challenging things. My first bet would be disk problem.
The battery will eventually fail and these notebooks run very poorly without functioning battery, if they run at all. But it is unlikely to cause what you observe, without battery these notebooks run _very_ slowly all the time.

did you run first aid to fix it? you need to reboot into recovery, and run disk first aid to repair the OS... then see how things go.
