hey guys, i was wondering if anyone would be be able to help me out with a problem i have been having for some time. I upgraded to snow leopard, loving it, got back close to 20 gigs of hard drive space. But when i go and click on items on the desktop, its beach balls for 10 seconds on average, and then continues to operate fine. This is especially noticeable in safari when hitting command-t to open a new tab. I went out and bought a g-drive one terabyte to clean out my hard drive. I would like to do a clean install, but would like some further input as to any new ideas or if it happened to you. I usually have open itunes ical and neo office. I have the 2.4 MBP Feb 09 stock currently. Thanks in advance. Lloyd.
