my mbp seem to have just gotten a lot slower over the last year (as to be expected). i regularly go in to disc utility and verify/repair my disc permissions. I have also moved over all of my movies/music to my external HD what else can I do to make it faster? I have my 2 install discs and I have heard that reloading the software will help but I dont exactly know how to do that so if that would help and someone could post how/what to do that would be great. also, random question, is there a way that I can check and see if I ever activated my apple care? I know that I purchased it because I have the apple care protection box here but I dont remember if I ever activated it?
