1. To speed up Mac computers, you'll be using a utility that's already installed. Open your hard drive, open "Applications" then "Utilities."
Now, run "Disk Utility" and select a disk (if you have two showing, you'll want to repeat this process with the second disk after the first). After selecting a disk, click, "Repair Disk Permissions."
If you have two disks listed, make sure to run Repair Disk Permissions on the second disk as well.
Restart your computer. When it's started up again, you'll have successfully made your mac run faster!
2. Make sure your hard drive has about 10-20% of free space. Mac OS X automatically defragments most of your hard drive files, but it needs some free space so it can do this; plus, your computer will swap files with your RAM and hard drive to make certain programs run faster, so you need some free space for that. If your drive is almost full, you should consider getting a new drive.
3. Keep your computer clean. With the frequent use of your Mac machine, your applications and the Mac OS create tons of junk files, like caches, logs, etc, which will waste a lot of disk space and make your Macbook Pro/Air running slow.
Junk files are temporary files that are created when programs are executed and require some information to be temporarily stored in system. They are not automatically removed by the executed program that generated these files. When these junk files left in the system, they not only take precious disk space but also slows down the system performance when hundreds and thousands of them are stored and are totally useless.
