My MBP behaves very sluggishly to my everyday tasks . Eg. -takes about 45-55 seconds to launch Word after a boot up. -boot up takes about a minute or more. -time from sleep to password screen takes about 15-30 seconds of 'beachballing'. -quitting applications (particularly PPC ones) takes quite a bit of time. -All in all, it does *feel* a lot more sluggish than it used to be during the first few months of its life. And I see a lot of that damn 'watch' and 'beachball' than I used to. Hardware: Stock MBP 2.0GHz, 1gb RAM, 100gb HDD with 30gb free By the end of the day after a reboot I end up with about 150,000 pageouts. I have installed and deleted a lot of trial applications as I am new to mac (about 1 yr since switch) and am still trying to discover new apps and utilities. So my questions are: 1: Are there any good tune up utilities that can help bring my MBP to its peak performance? I have tried ONYX but no big difference. 2. Does the high no. of pageouts I get imply/demand another 1gb of memory? Because I don't want to spend $300 only to discover the performance issue was unrelated to RAM. So I would like that to be the last resort. Thanks!
