My MBP (2.7Ghz, 13" version) which I bought August-ish last year is ridiculous slow. My friend said to post here with a screenshot of my activity monitor. Droplr*•*Screenshot 2012-02-12 at 18.10.19.png

Anyone got any tips on how to get it running at a usable speed again?

Thanks in advance

And let us know how you make out.

Your screen shot doesn't show anything that would be cause for concern.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
