    I have a 2.3 GHz i5 4 GB MBP I got from Best Buy about 14 months ago. Up until a few days ago it ran like a champ but since then it takes 10 minutes to load even the Finder window.

    I have been reading some threads and it sounds like a Hard Drive or RAM problem to me. Like I said it runs very slow but the mouse is fluent and not laggy at all. It will shut down and boot up but what normally takes 45 seconds now takes a minimum of 15-20 minutes. I wrote the post on it and it was a good 10 minute endeavor I have the Black Tie from Best Buy which covers 'accidental' damage.

    I've never posted before so please let me know if I'm not posting in the right forum or whatever.
