    Multi-tasking & hard drive serious help needed
    I got a macbook a week ago, i really like this guy. This is the first mac ive ever owned but I have used several others


    My two main problems are that this computer tends to lock-up a lot when running multiple programs (msn, i chat, safari itunes and garage band). I dont know if im doing to much or if it is my computer, but I've been force quitting a lot and also experiencing delayed access to the dashboard


    also the hardrive which is 60 gb only has 24 left on it after installing microsoft office lime wire, and adding roughly 13 gb of music. Still 36 gb seems like a lot to be used up already.

    $edit$
    i downloaded disk inventory x just now so im going to see what its all about in regards to problem #2

    Any help is appreciated and thanks for letting me be a part of your ballin' forums
