    Some specs on your book will help model, year and processor along with how much ram
    which could be the answer right there and how many things you have running at the same time.

    Also, it would be worth knowing how much free space you have left on your hard drive.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    10 GB free space on the hard disk is not good enough.
    Can you free up more space ... like 15% of your total disk capacity ?
    ( Make sure you have a backup before you start deleting stuff )

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    +1 on the free space. Ten gig left is not enough breathing room for your Mac to run the way it was intended.
