    This is the first post in the forum, so please bear with me. :)

    I own a Macbook Pro computer which I bought a year ago. The computer usually works very fast, until last week - it became very slow.

    Computer info:

    Model Identifier "MacBookPro6,1", Version 10.6.8, Processor 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7, Memory 4GB (1067 MHz DDR3), Graphic Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M.

    I really don't know what's causing this problem. I noticed that when the computer is slow I'm not using much CPU, I'm hardly using the internet, the CPU's temperature is ~60*C. The fans' spinning rates are ~2000 RPM.

    This is usually happens when I'm using Xcode or when I use the computer continuously.

    Please tell me if you know what's causing the problem.
    Thanks in advance,

    Unfortunately that information is not a lot to go off of as far as diagnosing a problem. It could be that you are having issues with a hard drive, RAM, or a processor or it could just be that you have too many background applications open. Take a look at your RAM usage when you computer becomes slow, that might be an indication as to why.
