    I recently bought a new MBP, and when i first bought it (end of April), it was faster than ever, but now it has seemed to slow down when opening webpages and things. Is there anything that I can do to speed it up again? Why is it running slower already?

    what i mean is that a lot of people have been experiencing performance issues since updating to 10.6.8, but it's not relevant in this case apparently since you are running 10.6.7....

    How are you sure it’s "a lot of people?" There have been some posts on the Apple forums and a few here in MR, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the issues are affecting a large amount of people compared to the ones it didn’t affect.

    That being said, 10.6.8 turned off my sound effects and killed my wifi connection. All I had to do was go into sound prefs and turn on the settings back to internal speakers (for some reason got changed), and reset my router and WAP.

    lol, it's a subjective phrase. it's obviously generalized. i have seen a few posts about it and i myself had problems with it at first. i just typed "a lot" as opposed to some, many, a few, a couple. what's the big deal?

    OP, check activity monitor.

    Have a look at Activity Monitor (Applications / Utilities /) and select All Processes and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.
    Also check the "System Memory" tab to see what your "Page ins:", "Page outs:" and "Swap used:" are.

    image below uses sorting by CPU as an example
