I have had my MBPro for around seven months now and have used it for nothing but checking my email and going to around six or seven sites.
( Boring use of a Mac right ? )
I'm puzzled by the sudden slowness that it has though. Tasks such as opening a ( small ) picture in Preview, or playing a song in the background while online results in a spinning pinwheel icon for around 7-8 seconds before anything happens.
From what i understand, Macs don't have to be defragged like PCs, but surely there is some sort of general housekeeping that needs to be done.

I notice that after I cleared my cache, the computer began lagging even worse.

What's going on ?
