    I have a fairly new (within the past 6 months) 13 inch Macbook Pro and before that I had a blackbook. The Pro gets the spinning beachball quite often and it just goes slow sometimes even though I have 4 gigs of RAM and even when I'm only running a couple of apps. I never had this problem with the less powerful blackbook. Anyone know what is going on?

    have you repaired your permissions lately with disk utility?

    did you upgrade to Snow Leopard?

    Yes, I just repaired my permissions the other day and I upgraded, not a clean install, to Snow Leopard a week or so after it came out.

    there is always a debate about upgrading versus fresh install and i always choose fresh install. there is a "chance" that an upgrade will cause a problem and so i dont take that risk.

    i have read about problems like this after upgrading and i would bet you that if you did a clean/fresh install your problems would go away.

    let us know and good luck

    That has been the plan for a while but I need Microsoft Office and I just moved from Guam to Turkey so all my stuff is in shipment. So whenever that shows up I will do the fresh install. hopefully it works, thanks for the advice.
