A few months ago, I purchased a 13" Macbook Pro Mid-2014 Series. But lately, it's been running a bit too fast.

It's just so blazingly fast, I can't see jack-****! I've tried downloading and installing a bunch of different programs and ran them all at once to slow it down, but it won't work! It's still fast, even with all those programs!

My second theory was to see if I could make it run out of memory, so I started downloaded massive files. Sadly, it didn't work and it was still run super fast!

After trying to make it run out of memory, I tried doing both at the same time. Surprisingly, it's still extremely fast.

Can anyone help me slow down my Mac?

Assuming you are being serious that this is a real problem…what exactly is your MacBook Pro doing that is "too fast"…or what are you trying to do that cannot be done because the computer is too fast? Be specific.

This is a new one; I'm not sure anyone has ever complained about a computer being too fast. Like Nick asked, what are you trying to do that speed is a problem?

My finger is hovering over a certain "button"…we'll see if it gets pressed or not!;)

Only time I ever said my computer was too fast was back in the old days. I loved the Game Frogger. Well when I got my 386, the game literally sped up so fast you could not make it across the river! I hit the Turbo button which put the CPU at 1/2 speed and the logs were still going by too fast for gameplay! I had to put it on a old 286 to play it! Funny really as the games movement speed was controlled by the CPU speed! :D

Also look at the OP's handle!
