Hello! My wife got a Macbook three or four years ago and has used it until today (it's still on Leopard). However, about two years ago, she noticed that it was becoming slower and slower, with the harddrive (and beach ball) working more and more. She stopped using Photoshop, and then had to stop using InDesign as well (ie, she cannot work on the computer at all since over a year ago back). Today, she stopped watching movies, and is on the verge of having to stop even web browsing because of constant harddrive rattle and the computer just being unbearably slow. She switched from a Windows machine because I told her that OS X didn't get slower over time, but that is apparently not true in this case, even though she hasn't installed a single new program in over two years. Is there anything that can be done, apart from a complete wipe (which I guess I should have done long ago, but we haven't found the time)? EDIT: Oh, and I tried to install 2gb of RAM in it, but apparently it's the "fake" 64-bit one which can only take a maximum of 1.5gb RAM, so that's what it's got now.
