Has your Mac lost its zip? Nearly every Mac’s speed can be boosted considerably and inexpensively if you know what you’re doing. In this practical, hands-on book, Joe Kissell offers you the results of his extensive research and experimentation in the area of Macintosh performance.
This book helps you separate myth from fact when it comes to performance, identify the exact causes of slowdowns, and measure your Mac’s speed before and after making changes. You’ll systematically root out gremlins that chew up CPU cycles, RAM, and disk space; discover tricks to improve responsiveness; learn how to speed up your network; and more. You’ll also explore the benefits of hardware upgrades such as SSDs, faster hard drives, and extra RAM. This book is for all Macs running OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, or 10.11 El Capitan.
