    Since your two specific complaints are focused on activities that require an internet connection, are you using WiFi or Ethernet?

    Up until recently I had a 13" mid 2009 MBP with the 2.53GHz processor. It didn't seem to have any issues like you've described, but I had upgraded the RAM to 8GB and upgraded to a 256GB SSD. I had also upgraded to OSX 10.8.

    If it's generally freezing - it's probably a dying hard drive.
