How to Speed up a slow running MacBook Pro?
02/09/2017 1003 views
I have a MacBook Pro for 2012 model. It’s a 3GHz with 4 GB of RAM.
It has been proved a great computer for me, but from past few days, it’s starting to get slow and somewhat laggy. Safari has crashed continuously even when I open few tabs.
Also, I am not using any kind of Antivirus software on my MacBook Pro. Any tips or tricks to make it fast again.
Note: Please do not give tips like re-install OS and update to macOS Sierra. As I am already using macOS Sierra and have re-installed Mac OS two times.
