Hi people.
I just wanted to get some advice on how my Mac is running, as i think it has become slower since i bought it and wondered if it is anything i have done or should be doing
First of all, i have a MBP bought mid 2011, has thunderbolt port, its 2.3Ghz Intel i5, 4GB 1333Mhz DDR3, 320Gb HD and now running Mountain Lion.
When i first got it i thought it was quicker than anything i have used previously, an example would be when i click to open an apple program e.g. iphoto, the icon jumped up and then seconds later it was open. Now any program i try to open, it seems to take much longer, it bounces for a while and then finally opens.
I have not got any clutter on the laptop, i keep all my files on a network hard drive. The only thing i have is 80Gb of photos stored under iphoto and i have Windows XP running on a 40Gb partition using Bootcamp.
I am thinking about getting rid of the XP on my mac to see if it helps, but thought i would ask here first. I need XP as it allows me to run programs which dont support Apple OS X.
I was also wanting to know the best way to store photos, would i be able to store the photos on my network drive and have iphoto work exactly the same..?
Help much appreciated.
Thank you.
