Sooooo, I am fairly new to the mac world. I mean I bought my macbook pro about two years ago, however, it is just now starting to act up. I am pretty good about researching things and doing what people suggest to do to help things run smoothly, like using disc doctor, defrag, and all that jazz. However, I have done all of these things, and I still encounter the same problem. My problem is that every time I want to watch a show on netflix or use Skype, my computer starts to run extremely slow. I know that video takes up a lot of RAM, but I do want to be able to watch a show smoothly and not have to deal with the chop shop video on Skype. Can anybody help poor ole me and my video streaming?
