Same same, but different: You have recently purchased a new Mac and it is going like clockwork. No stuttering or freezing. It runs smooth, fast and reliable. But as soon as the Mac has a few duration of benefits, it starts to judder. The Excel file doesn’t want to open and the browser starts in slow motion. At the same time, you want to open Parallels, but the cursor seems to be frozen and nothing works anymore. If you want to continue to work, you need to wait endless minutes or restart your computer.
As a matter of course, it is not necessary to buy a new Mac. With a little bit of help, you can speed up your Mac in no time. How? Get our useful tips in our latest Weekly Hack.
If you want to speed up your Mac, you need to check the weak points
Analyse the weak points of your Mac for an easy speed up. You can do this e.g. with the “Activity Monitor”. It allows an uncomplicated analysis when performance problems have occurred and you get valuable information about network activity, disk usage, power consumption, memory activity, and current CPU load.
Let the program run in the background for a while to always see the workload in a diagram of the last two minutes. If the performance gives you reason to complain, you can easily understand why the Mac currently stumbles. The display of memory pressure and CPU load is the most important information in the activity display. If you notice a strong rash in these two areas, the reason for the stuttering computer might be in the corresponding area.
For instance, yellow or red bars in the „Memory Pressure“ display indicate a lack of working memory. Therefore, you should start to improve the performance. The most effective way to get to the bottom of CPU usage is to check the utility’s dock. Take a look at the different dock information in the „Display“ > „Icon in Dock“ menu and check the loss of performance at a high CPU load.
High storage pressure often turns into a problem
If you own a computer that has less memory than 8GB, it’s a must-do for you to keep an eye on the „Memory Pressure“ display. If the indicator is green, there are no problems with memory usage. If the indicator changes to yellow or red, difficulties may occur. In this case, the installed RAM is no longer sufficient to carry out all processes as desired.
In this case, the system outsources memory contents to the hard disk, resulting in a so-called „swap“. This causes delayed reactions after commands. A typical symptom is the protracted starting of a program during high activity of the hard disk. As a result, also focus on the display „Swap used“. If a value higher than zero is displayed, it is also an indicator of a lack of RAM.
Speed up your Mac with a reasonable software from Licenceking
If you actually detect a lack of RAM on your Mac, there are two possibilities to solve this problem: you can expand the RAM or analyse the system for memory wasters. Certainly, if you want to add more memory, it might be a problem. First of all, it is often too expensive. Secondly, in many current Mac versions, the RAM chips are firmly soldered and therefore, you have to choose the right amount of memory when buying it.
