My mac seems to be running rather slowly! I an hear the HDD been written to like most of the time. I currently have 2 safari windows, itunes, neooffice and transmission and feels like its struggling - I get a few beachballs. I have also run verify disk from Disk Utility and get this: Do this mean my hard drive is on its way out? My system: 1.66ghz core duo. 2gb ram, 22gb free hard disk space and using Tiger 10.4.11.
