If you’re on Mac OS X, I tried a utility called System Optimizer yesterday that worked really well. My computer was slow as molasses and I was about to go out and get more ram. I usually have at least ten applications open at a time. Well…at MacGeekery blog System Optimzer was mentioned to speed things up. I downloaded it and tried it. It worked amazingly well. The results were dramatic and I was opening aps like Final Cut and Photoshop at lighting speed again. It’s shareware and seems to be well worth the $12 that the developer is asking.
