    Ever since a few days ago my MBP has been a bit slow with some applications like iTunes and chrome (youtube videos lag alot). Its a 13" mbp early 2011 so it really shouldn't have a problem with changing songs and playing videos. I tried restarting it, reinstalling itunes and chrome but nothing seems to work. Any advice guys?

    Have a look at Activity Monitor (Applications / Utilities /) and select All Processes and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.
    Also check the "System Memory" tab to see what your "Page ins:", "Page outs:" and "Swap used:" are.

    Have you tried AJA System Test or Xbench* yet to benchmark your HDD?
