Hi, im on 10.8.5, i have a macbook pro, 4gb ram, 2.4ghz intel core i5 processor. I have 122gb space free on the mac HD. I am finding lately that things are becoming really slow to respond, like opeing itunes takes about 10-15 seconds sometimes, when i open the finder window its blank for about 5 seconds, i get the spinning wheel, then it shows my stuff. Opening safari also, the icon bounces in the dock about 6 times before it opens. ive done the disk utility thing, verified permissions, repaired permissions etc.. Anyone know what i can do to get it back to acting normal again? its becoming really annoying. Thanks for any help or advice.
