I have over 50 gig of HD left. As I'm typing the mac can barely keep up. Windows drag when I scroll and it takes about 2 seconds for something to minimize.

Did you install new RAM recently?
Do you have tons of widgets running in the background?

Try opening the Activity Monitor and see which programs are eating away the most power..

No new RAM. Stock 2.2 MBP.

Don't even use widgets. My 3 year old PC seems much faster.

Also, nothing in activity monitor shows much. I have over 1.5 gig of ram free.

I've experienced slow-downs, such as the text not keeping up.

Simply because there is a program in the background that is leaking memory. The Mac Bittorent program Transmission is an example of this (although it was updated today, so not sure if the new build has fixed that).

What programs do you have running? Have you installed any hacks, such as extra OSX themes?
