Re: Wait, you're running it on a Mac and it's fast? Mine is freaking slow!

The stock advice to trouble shooting is:

1) Launch Activity Monitor and check if something is hogging the processor or ram.
2) Disable any start-up items.
3) Create a new user account, log on with that and see if it runs better.

4) Check the system logs for errors (you don't need to understand what you see, initially you just look for the word ERROR or other obvious signals of distress and from there, bing it)
