I have a computer that’s stumping me. My caregiver/cousin/friends Late 2011 MBP 13” 2.8GHz i7 is was running slow… a few grey screens… I figured hard drive. I reformatted the new TB hybrid drive I got from Macgurus that was on my iMac and got it into her computer fine with her OS. Nothing no change, maybe a little… she was using a 3.75GB of 4GB RAM so not that bad… but we put 8GB in for a total of 10GB still not what it should be… IMO

I booted other systems via FW800 - also slow.

She’s got a MBP 13” Late 2011 2.8GHz i7, 10GB RAM, 1 TB hybrid drive this should run just fine. Snapy? - right, faster than stock?

I found some stuff about using with a older/bad battery said slows it down.- possible

Any thoughts? I’l going to read more. If it ran faster once?

Only talking about using Safari, Pages, Word… simple docs nothing tough. She does have a huge photo library.

Can half a processor be working? Any tests I can do here?
