2.0 GHz, 1 GB memory. My macbook is just SO slow. I usually only run firefox, thunderbird, and word and it takes forever to even switch from one window to another. The drop-downs in apps are slow too. Opening iPhoto takes so long. Limewire is a killer--I virtually can't have anything else running when using it, but I guess that's understandable. In short, everything is incredibly slow. And more often than not, it refuses to shut down. Everything disappears except the background, and then it stays stuck there until I just press the power button. It's really aggravating me. There are lots of other problems with the computer as well, but I can't recall them at the moment. I went to a genius bar but they didn't do anything to help. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated, as I can't stand this anymore.
