Hi! Long time reader, first time poster on this forum. I currently own a mid 2010 Macbook Pro 13" and the battery is singing on the last verse after 6 years. It says "change soon" in the top-right corner when I check its status and I will change it in a couple of weeks, but I have a number of issues and I don't know if they are related to the battery. For the last 2 months or so it hasn't functioned properly, it is insanely slow in every way imaginable, freezes every 8 seconds or so and can barely be used in general due to this. The Macbook Pro is almost constantly connected to the charger and there are no problems charging it and it doesn't seem to last shorter duration than usual without being plugged in. When I read about battery issues they seem fairly restricted to failure to charge the battery, less battery time and whatnot. Could these issues of mine be because of the old battery or could there be something wrong with the 5400-rpm hard drive? Disk Utility can't find anything wrong with it when I run it, but is there a way for me to confirm the drives status on my own? Thank you in advance.
