I have a 1.83 ghz MBP with 1GB of RAM. I purchased it a little less than a year ago. The computer is generally pretty snappy, but I've noticed a lot of slow down since purchase. OSX takes about 2-3 times as long to load up, and I have no idea what the problem is. I only have one small program that loads at start up... about 15 or so icons on my desktop... and my bar at the top loads iChat, international, airport, battery, time, and bluetooth. Any ideas on how to get my Mac back to normal? Thanks Edit: I have about 13 GB of free HD space left as well. Don't know if that matters but regardless.
