Speedup your Mac
Quit waiting for the beach ball to stop spinning and do something about it. Nik Rawlinson shows how you can help your Mac run faster…
We’ve all done it: watched someone open Word, browse the web or just start up their brand-new Mac and found ourselves
astounded at how fast it runs. We’ll let you into a secret: it’s probably not just more memory and a faster processor enabling their Mac to outpace your own, but also because it’s uncluttered and factory-fresh.
There are all sorts of reasons why a Mac slows down over time. Some blame can be laid at Apple’s door for making OS X more demanding over time, but a large part’s due to our own poor housekeeping, leading to cluttered drives and fragmented free space.
We’ll show you how to make your Mac run faster. A lot of what follows can be done for free, but we’ll also point out the practical upgrades that make a big difference, but it’ll cost you less than a whole new Mac – and it’s more environmentally responsible, too.
