    So I've had my current MB for about 8 months, and its starting to feel a bit sluggish. I'm just wondering how others maintain the zip that we all love in our apple computers. I upgraded to 4GB of ram, and keep at least 20GB free on my HDD, so I don't think those things are an issue. Any tips??

    you can use OnyX to run some system maintainence tasks.

    i usually run the automated set of tasks once every month or so.

    *be careful with this program though! it gives you access to many system settings that are otherwise difficult to fiddle with.

    To speed it up, you can (in ascending order)

    Reboot

    >Reset Safari

    >>Run System Update

    >>>Run Onyx

    >>>>Reinstall OS X
