Hi,
My early 2011 13" MBP has recently been running slowly. I have only got about 15GB free on my harddrive as I have a reasonably large Windows partition. I have heard that a lack in free space can cause the slowing down of any computer and I wondered if this was the case. Also my Mac has been running hot and the fans often kick in. My Mac will often sit around 87-91oC. Is it worth a fresh install of lion and trying to cut out some unused data?
Regards Ollie
