Well this will be the second time posting this (first time somehow logged me out when i hit post). Anyways my macbook is just over a year old, and haven't experienced any issues other then the rare force quit one. Two days ago i shut down the macbook, went away and two hours later it was still trying to shut down. Spinning on my desktop picture. So i shut it down by holding power. Since then my macbook has been running slowly/chopping on everything. Safari beach ball spins, or quits unexpectantly. Opening apps either spins/ runs very choppy or quits all together. A few times on safari i get a slow script message. DVD seems to be the only app immune to this problem. So i am concerned as to what the problem might be, as i was naive to think that macs were indestructible. Would this be a hard drive, memory, maintenance issue? I only today performed the fix disk through the utilities and that said that everything was ok, and laptop still runs the same. So any suggestions as to what might be the issue please help me out. Also if there is any information required from me to help diagnose the problem please let me know, and i will provide said info. Thanks.
