Make your Mac run faster

You sit there, staring at your Mac's screen. First it's the startup screen, then you're waiting for Word to launch. Then you need Photoshop, so you wait for that too. You wait and wait and wait, wondering who's the boss here. You avoid restarting your Mac because it takes so long to do so. You can't work like this anymore.

You need your Mac to run faster! At least as fast as it was when it was new, and (if possible) even faster!

Well, you're in luck. iHelp IT can make it run as fast as new, and maybe even much faster!

As part of our Apple tech support work, we frequently see situations where slow Macs are stealing hours of productivity from staff. Whether it’s a long startup, taking the scenic route to opening a file, being leisurely about saving documents, or the steely-eyed face off with the colourful wheel of death, it’s always a time thief.

Why is my Mac slow and what can I do about it?

The reasons for a slow Mac, and what you can do about it, boil down to 3 possibilities:

Spinning Hard Disk

Spinning hard disks slow everything down, so replacing your spinning hard disk with a solid state disk (SSD) will speed up everything.

Result: Maximum speed!

Bang for buck:

Bad Software

Often slow-downs are due to software; old, bloated, unneeded. Updates may fix problems, but sometimes a rebuild is needed.

Result: Restore performance.

Bang for buck:

Corrupt Data

A slowdown which occurs during a specific task can be elusive to locate, and will take time to resolve. Once the cause is found the slow-down can be fixed.

Result: Squash that one bug.

Bang for buck:

Without a doubt, the best thing you can do to speed up your Mac is to replace your old spinning hard disk with a new solid state disk (SSD).
