    Hey all,

    I currently have a 13" MBP 2.26GHz with 2GB RAM. I also have a 500GB hard drive with 98GB left of free space.

    I've noticed that my Mac runs slow at times. I get the beach ball a lot too.

    Is this due to my hard drive and if I were to upgrade to a SSD, would that improve my performance? Do I need more RAM?

    Thanks,

    Habitus

    More RAM would improve the system and reduce the spinning ball.

    I have been getting a similar issue, just starting to feel a little sluggish from time to time. I am ordering 4GB of RAM on payday :D !!

    U need to boost your machine up. Get 4GB of RAM, get an Intel SSD, install a fresh copy of snow leo and you will be smoking.

    SSD's are pretty much a must in laptops nowadays. :D
