    I was having troubles with my macbook running slow. I Did a google search and it told me to delete/remove widgets (i downloaded them ages ago and never used them) I turned Bluetooth off which I had on for some reason and I deleted programes running in the background under system preferences "other"

    WOW it's like I have a new machine.

    There really is no purpose to this thread I just wanna say how surprising it is these things take up RAM. I have noticed a real difference with google chrome loading faster too and just in general everything is faster.

    it's threads like this that have really helped! NO more stress!!
