my macbook pro has been running slowly lately,especially when I'm omn the net, I use firefox and everytime i go to websites or browse the net it sometimes lags and slows down a couple seconds. Any ways to fix this? perhaps deleting cookies etc? or should i quit using firefox

also is there any good ad blockers you guys recommend?

apple will charge alot for it

just get some cheap ram online (follow these specs: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1651)

and install it yourself, with an online guide

^ system prefs - > energy saver ? that's how it is on my macbook

skkipy : you can add ram with apple.. its cheaper if you have a student discount.. or you can get you or someone to install ram for you. iono too much about harddrive space since i couldnt add more in store but i would just get an external hard drive.. up to you though.


thanks for tha tips both of you smokeyface

I don't think you can change that name, when you setup your mac for the first time I believe it tells you that you can't change that name afterwards. I clicked next/ok too fast when I was setting up my macbook and now the user name/directory is my mac account name, it's so stupid...
