    OS X does a certain about of 'cleaning up' etc under its own steam, so there is no real need to do a full defrag, just so long as at least 10% of your HDD capacity it free.

    yeah, from time to time you can verify/repair disk permissions. that helps some. otherwise, just watch your HD space and clean unneeded files out every few months or so.
