Answer to: Why is my Mac Pro so slow to respond to everything?I took the computer to my local Apple store and had them run a diagnostic overnight. The next day they called to tell me the hard drive was bad. Even though I had run many Disk Utility diagnostics of my own and every time the results were, "The disk appears to be okay." I bought two new 1TB drives (about $100 each) and slid them in, replacing the old drive. Installed Snow Leopard, installed the upgrades (including the combo upgrade), then ran my Time Machine restore backup and I have my old speedy MacPro again. The other hard drive? I intend to put Mountain Lion on that and do an Option-Start whenever I want to run the newer OSX with CS6.
