    All,

    I have a 13" 2.26GHz MBP.

    I am experiencing sluggish overall performance for some time. Here are my specs: 2GB RAM and a Toshiba 500GB HDD.

    The HDD has about 12GB of free space, could this cause my sluggish performance? I defragged HDD to no avail.

    I have basic usage, which I thought didn't warrant 4GB of RAM?

    Cheers

    The rule of thumb is to leave at least 25% of your hard drive space available or you will experience slowdowns.
