My macbook pro is running slower than normal, is there a way to speed it back up?

Lately my Macbook pro has been slowing way down. This primarily happens when working in Photoshop (or at least that is where I notice it most) and if I shut down then start back up it is slightly faster. I am an old PC guy and have only been on a Mac for a year now. With PC's you could clean out a cache or do some other things to "clean out the system". Is there something I can do on the Mac to bring the working speed back up to where it was when I bought the system? I have already cleaned out the trash and I transfer most of my images and large file to an external drive so I have over 1/2 my HD space still available.

1: Max out your RAM. Crucial.com has a excellent method to make sure you get the exact RAM specifications and tells you the amount of RAM slots available (you have two, both filled with the default RAM) Buy your RAM wherever you like of course once you get the information.
2: If you have a more recent machine, OtherWorld Computing has 16GB of RAM available for $1500 if your game. That would most certainly speed up Photoshop as it wouldn't have to swap the extra memory to the hard drive (slow). I don't know who else sells 16GB of RAM at this time.
3: You can install a 500GB OCZ Vertex SSD drive and use that as the boot drive, your Photoshop will most certainly scream. But the fastest 500GB OCZ Vertex SSD on the market is $1800. Apple's is slower (needs a new Mac) and is about $1500. You could go with a smaller/faster SSD, but lack significant storage space. SSD's are not 100% erasable and have limited write capacity. You could opt for a 7,200 RPM hard drive replacement and gain some more speed and large storage capicity without breaking the bank.
4: You can run ALL the maintenance and cleaning aspects of the free OnyX and reboot, that will perform the "cache cleaning" your looking for and perhaps solve something that is messed up and slowing your machine down, but it's not a significant performance enhancer.
Since your a new Mac user, there is a lot of free "extras" including OnyX, that a Mac user might have great need for, included in this list.

  • 2010 Macbook pro is running slow in Mavericks.  Do I need more than 4gb ram?

    My late 2010 13" 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro is running slow since upgrading to Mavericks.  I currently only have 4gb of ram.  When I boot up It takes quite awhile (nearly 5 minutes or more) before the system is usable.  Or it takes almost as long to switch to another user.  Once I let it sit, it runs fine.  I'm mostly using Safari and possibly MS Word at any given time.  I looked at the Activity monitor and I believe I'm using aboiut 3.6 - 3.9gb of physical memory and over 4gb of virtual memory.  Swap is using 0 at all times.
    Do I need more RAM?  Wipe my drive and do a fresh install?  I'm reluctant to do the latter, because I don't want to have to reinstall all of my apps (even witha TM backup).
    Thanks all

    Thanks Linc for any help-
    Hope I didn't paste too much.  Uninstalling CleanMyMac has already helped some.  Here goes:

  • MacBook Pro is running slow and All applications getting not responding..

    MacBook Pro is running slow and All applications getting not responding after every 30 seconds. I have tested by hardware test  nothing wrong with hardware. I am worried Because I am totally stuck with my macbook pro Help me Please !!! I have tested by creating guest account and also new account as administrator. same thing happened. apps running. I opened activity monitor and watched carefully when any app stucked, In activity monitor there is in front of ap name following text appeared : (Not Responding) in red color. 129GB free memory, 4 GB RAM Core i3 MacBook Pro 13 inch.
    Instant help needed..
    Thanks in ADVANCE !!!

    First, back up all data immediately, as your boot drive might be failing.
    There are a few other possible causes of generalized slow performance that you can rule out easily.
    Reset the System Management Controller.
    If you have many image or video files on the Desktop with preview icons, move them to another folder.
    If applicable, uncheck all boxes in the iCloud preference pane.
    Disconnect all non-essential wired peripherals and remove aftermarket expansion cards, if any.
    Check your keychains in Keychain Access for excessively duplicated items.
    Boot into Recovery mode, launch Disk Utility, and run Repair Disk.
    If you're booting from an aftermarket SSD, see whether there's a firmware update for it.
    Otherwise, take the steps below when you notice the problem.
    Step 1
    Launch the Activity Monitor application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Activity Monitor in the icon grid.
    Select the CPU tab of the Activity Monitor window.
    Select All Processes from the menu in the toolbar, if not already selected.
    Click the heading of the % CPU column in the process table to sort the entries by CPU usage. You may have to click it twice to get the highest value at the top. What is it, and what is the process? Also post the values for % User, % System, and % Idle at the bottom of the window.
    Select the System Memory tab. What values are shown in the bottom part of the window for Page outs and Swap used?
    Next, select the Disk Activity tab. Post the approximate values shown for Reads in/sec and Writes out/sec (not Reads in and Writes out.)
    Step 2
    If you have more than one user account, you must be logged in as an administrator to carry out this step.
    Launch the Console application in the same way you launched Activity Monitor. Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Select the 50 or so most recent entries in the log. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V). You're looking for entries at the end of the log, not at the beginning.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. Don't post more than is requested.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some personal information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting. That should be easy to do if your extract is not too long.

  • HT1338 why my macbook pro is running slow now ?

    why my macbook pro is running slow ?

    Disconnect all peripherals from your computer.
    Boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.
    Select your language.
    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.
    Select Disk Utility.
    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.
    Click Repair Disk.
    Restart your computer when done.
    Repair permissions after you reach the desktop-http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=25751 and restart your computer.
    Sluggish Finder - Bunch of icons on your desktop?  An overcrowded desktop slows down your Mac. Get rid of needless Finder calculations - Open a window in Finder/View/Show View Options:  ensure "Calculate All Sizes" option is unchecked.
    Internet related - It's likely that your broadband connection is the bottleneck.  You can check your speed on http://www.speedtest.net to see how fast your connection is.  If your web browser specifically performs slowly, quit and relaunch it.   If browser remains sluggish, empty its cache. Safari/Empty Cache Firefox/Preferences - select the Network tab of the Advanced preferences and click the "Clear Now" button in the "Offline Storage" area.
    Application related - Launch "Activity Monitor" - Applications/Utilities - click the CPU heading and see what float to the top.  If an application takes up a large chunk of CPU and won't let it go, it could be dragging down your Mac's performance.  Quit it by clicking the Quit Process button at the top of the Activity Monitor window.
    Too little ram - max out your ram.

  • My macbook pro is running slower.  What can I do?

  • MacBook Pro started running slow and freezing up

    Hi,
    What are some things I can do when my MacBook Pro starts running slow and freezing up?  For example, windows are slow to open, and that pinwheel thing keeps spinning.  Clean up tips would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    tamyc,
    You can try resetting your MacBook Pro’s System Management Controller;
    You can try booting into Safe mode, to see whether it runs just as slowly (and freezes up) then;
    You can try disabling your antivirus software, to see if that makes a difference;
    You can download, install, and run EtreCheck, and include in your reply the output from an EtreCheck run, which might help identify software which should be uninstalled or updated.

  • My MacBook Pro is suddenly slower...is there an easy way to check for viruses?

    My MacBook Pro is suddenly slower...is there an easy way to check for viruses?

    OpsMgr have methods which can get all host classes. Here my own function which can solve your issue:
    function Get-SCOMClassProperty {
    param(
    [Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.ManagementPackClass]
    [Parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
    $ManagementClass,
    [Switch]
    [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
    $KeyOnly
    function Get-SCOMClassKeyProperty {
    param(
    $ManagementClass
    $ManagementClass.PropertyCollection | ? {$_.Key}
    If ($ManagementClass.Hosted) {
    Get-SCOMClassKeyProperty -ManagementClass $ManagementClass.FindHostClass()
    If ($ManagementClass.Base) {
    Get-SCOMClassKeyProperty -ManagementClass (Get-SCOMClass $ManagementClass.Base.Id)
    function Get-SCOMClassAllProperty {
    param(
    $ManagementClass
    $ManagementClass.PropertyCollection
    If ($ManagementClass.Base) {
    Get-SCOMClassAllProperty -ManagementClass (Get-SCOMClass $ManagementClass.Base.Id)
    $ManagementClassProperty = Get-SCOMClassKeyProperty -ManagementClass $ManagementClass
    If (!$KeyOnly) {
    $ManagementClassProperty += Get-SCOMClassAllProperty -ManagementClass $ManagementClass
    $ManagementClassProperty | Select-Object -Unique
    If you need to do it in SCOM 2007 R2 then you can try my scripts from this examples http://systemcenter4all.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/scom-monitoringclass-functions/. Last should work in 2007 R2 and in 2012. Example in thread will work only in 2012.
    For example just run command:
    New-SCOMManagementGroupConnection
    $ManagementClassName = "Microsoft.SQLServer.Database"
    $ManagementClass = Get-SCOMClass -Name $ManagementClassName
    Get-SCOMClassProperty -ManagementClass $ManagementClass -KeyOnly | select Name

    HI,
    I'm planning to Purchase Macbook Pro from United States while I'm there but later I will go back to India.
    Does it come with international warranty or do I have purchase internationaly warranty serperately ?
    Regards,

    Apple's warranty is global.  However, some countries have laws which over rides Apple's warranty.  To check to see if India is involved read the info in EU-wide Consumer Laws article.

  • Macbook pro system running slow - etrecheck shows issues - any idea how to apply fixes?

    Hi I normally consider myself pretty web savvy but I'm totally lost on what to do here. This computer has been running slow since I got it, but the harddrive went sideways recently. I've never worked with a recovered drive - which I apparently have as my terminal lists my workfolder-2 so....I'm guessing I'm pretty screwed. I learned about etrecheck through the forums here but don't understand how to apply it
    Would anyone help me understand what I need to do?
    Here's my etrecheck:
    Problem description:
    very slow osx system even with only one or two apps open - standard 2013 macbook pro

    Adding some RAM would help. Even though you haven't restarted for 4+ days, this is a little high. The 2 places I’ve seen recommended most to buy reliable RAM are below. I have purchased RAM several times from Other World Computing and have always been very satisfied with the product and service. They have on-line instructions on how to replace the RAM. OWC has also tested RAM above what Apple states is the maximum. I now have 6GB installed on a machine supposedly limited to 4 GB.

  • Macbook Pro i7 running slow

    I just picked up a new Macbook Pro i7 Mid-2012 w/ 8GB of RAM.  I am running VMWare Windows 8 (or Windows 7), Apple Mail, LibreOffice, Text Edit, Safari and Firefox.  According to MemoryClean, and I have 3.17GB of RAM free.  Checked with Disk Unility, nothing is wrong. 
    Any ideas?  The i7 seems to run slower than the i5 I had.  Very hard to work when switching through the programs takes some time.

    If you install new RAM or a new HDD and do no harm to the MBP, your warranty will still be honored, but not for the RAM and/or HDD.  Those will be warranted by the manufacturer and it probably means that the warranties will be better than the MBP warranty.  RAM is usually a lifetime warranty and HDDs range from 1 year to 5 years.
    Ciao.

  • Macbook Pro is running slow after mavericks upgrade

    Hello everyone,
    I recently downloaded the last update of Mavericks on my Macbook pro (13 inch, mid 2012).
    Since the upgrade, my mac has been incredibly slow... I have tried different things including: completely re downloading and installing mavericks, running the apple hardware test (both short and long tests), I have tried to fix it through resetting the macbook to factory settings. None of my attempts were successful.
    The Hardware:
    Mid 2012 Macbook Pro.
    Running OS X 10.9.4 Mavericks
    2,5 GHz intel Core I5
    4GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    The Problem:
    I updated Mavericks to its last version (10.9.4) and all of a sudden my macbook became super slow. It had no problem before, even under Mavericks, so my guess was it is a problem linked to this last version...
    What I've Done Thus Far:
    - Apple Hardware Tests (both long and short): All passed
    - Reinstalled Mavericks
    - Restoring to factory settings
    Any suggestions on what do to?
    Thank you!
    Nathan.

  • MacBook Pro Stalls/Running slow since Mavericks Installation

    On the advice of the more experienced here is a new thread.
    Since installing Mavericks my MBP has gone from pretty much an instant response to requests, to stalling, the spinning pinwheel, longer startup and shutdown times, as well as slower access to websites (Chrome and Safari, though Safari appears slower). 
    I have been advised to run EtreCheck when I first joined a post regarding the same problem.  I posted the results and was advised to work through some of the issues.  This is the initial test result and the very much appreciated advice.
    NOTE - EXTENSIVE TEXT TO FOLLOW.
    I don't have a specific fix from your report, but I can point out what other users have had issues with.

    Red is the items I'd look at these are mostly 'system level' - they can alter a lot in the OS. Check the developers website, update or remove the apps if the developer doesn't say it supports 10.9 or if you can live without them.
    Soundflower is out of date & it is a 'kernel extension', the kernel is the core of the OS - you don't want any old code running here.
    The installer has a removal tool too https://code.google.com/p/soundflower/ so update or remove it if you don't use it.
    Update or remove Paragon's NTFS tool, it is running at a system level & it's background jobs seem to be in a 'problem state', it also has something running in the kernel.
    Adobe has an updater running, try to ensure Adobe's apps are all up to date, just incase they have stopped checking. Repeat with Google's apps, just launch the apps & look in the 'App menu' or the Help menu for updates. These companies tend to reinstall the updaters if you try to delete them, so there it little you can do but keep the apps updated.
    It's odd that all your User Launch Agents: are not loaded, these are background jobs that start on login (if they are in a loaded state). The same principle applies, update or remove the related apps if they are not needed.
    CleanMyMac is a concern - there are lots of posts here claiming it can break the OS - it can help you to remove files that are installed by Apple which is not the best idea. I am unconvinced that running 'maintenance utilities' all the time is a good idea, however the app removal tool may be OK for cases where a developer doesn't have an uninstaller. 'Cleaner apps' use RAM & can spend time scanning files which can slow other tasks. Search here for varied opinions on CleanMyMac. I also use ClamXAV, ensure that is upto date & so check it's engine & rules are current.
    The purple items are 'user level' items (run on login of your account).
    There is a simple way to see if your issues are because of 'user level' items, create a new test user account & login as that user. If the Mac is stable you can assume it is something within your 'user items'.
    Check that you need the Login Items running every time you login. They are listed in System Preferences> Users & groups > select your account… login items tab.
    You appear to have 3 LogMeIn internet plugins installed - is Safari behaving OK or running slow? I would consider removing most plugins & then installing them as you need them. You can look inside /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ and ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ to remove them manually.
    ~/Library is your 'home library' Use the Finders Go Menu > Open Folder… and enter ~/Library to reveal it. Apple hid this Library folder.
    I'd be tempted to remove the Java applet plugin - old Java is a real secuity risk & Safari has probably disabled this for you already.
    There seems to be 2 Facebook plugins installed (probably inside your ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/). Remove the oldest one & look for the newest release. Update the Safari Extension if it needs it too.
    The Preference Panes are installed in /Library/PreferencePanes/ and ~/Library/PreferencePanes/. Open System prefs & launch each third party pref pane (the bottom rows) & check for updates if possible. These also have an ability to modify the OS, so any errors could effect everything. You can usually right click (or ctrl+click) to remove them from the preferences (it removes them from the OS, but may leave any libraries or extra tools behind - see if the developer has removal instructions).
    I see you have Plex installed, does this run very often? I find it can drag a Mac to a slow crawl when it is indexing. I suspect Connect360 may do similar things, but I don't really know for sure what it does .
    MenuTab for Facebook seems to be doing something with RAM & CPU, update or remove if you don't need it.
    That may all be daunting, but it should help. Start with the system level items, and then look at updating the other items. You may find things improve after a cleanup & a reboot.
    This was extremely helpful and I have gone as far as my knowledge will allow for now.  I did make a bootable clone of the main HDD prior to doing anything, and now there seems to be little improvment following the suggestions made.  Also along the way MacFuse was deleted and well as Flip4Mac and NTFS.  
    Things are far from perfect though and the MBP still stalls and is performing very poorly.
