Well, when I first got it I could run multiple apps at the same time with little to no lag, ran super! Well, this past year or so it seems like it is slow as heck... I upgraded to Tiger and it seemed good, not any slower, maybe faster in some things, but lately, it has gotten really bad.
So I figured it was my full HD, so I formatted and reinstalled Tiger, got an external drive and I store all my files on that, and just apps and the OS on my main drive, and she is still really slow... ie. adjusting the volume has about a 30sec delay sometimes, even with nothing else running....more than one app is almost impossible other than Safari and iChat etc.
Anyway, my point is, she is a lot slower than she used to be, even after a fresh clean install, permissions repaired, all the usual maintenance done, etc... Changing the wallpaper easily takes a good minute... Any ideas? This is getting rediculous, especially since it is my only computer...so when it comes to editing anything, I might as well forget about it...
