Hi, recently i have been using my iMac and not been using my MacBook. i am using my macbook now, but i am not enjoying it as much as i used to when i first got it. Why? well it has been running very slow it sort of reminds me of our 2005 windows desktop. aghh... so my MacBook is a mid 2008 white macbook, running snow leopard, 3 GB Ram, and 2.4ghz. i remember when my macbook was running very, very, very slow once but it was because the HD was failing, i replaced it and it was back on business. now it isn't running as slow as it was when the HD was failing, but it is still running slow. Safari usually takes longer to load than what it does on my iMac, and when i type sometimes it lags. i also get the "beach ball" a lot, that rainbow loading circle. i had 7 widgets opened but i only have 3 now. i only have mail as a startup. i noticed improvement, however, it is still lagging just a bit. is there anything i can do to improve?
