Why? It is mid spec'd with 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD. What are some drivers that would make it run god awfully slow? My computer struggles to open safari or any web browser, takes forever to launch anything i.e. iTunes, mail, etc, sometimes the computer just freezes (beachball) for minutes at a time, I've never had a computer this slow, what is the deal? I made a second user profile and logged out of mine + logged into that one. That profile seems to run more effeciently - why? What can I do to revitalize my MacBook Pro?
