My MacBookPRO is old.. 2008. The OS is up to date -X Maverick. The computer actually was doing well after I upgraded the OS but about a month or so ago I got the dreaded white screen. I thought the laptop was toast but then realized that the white screen was only a symptom of how slow the machine was to start up. From powering on to fully loaded desktop it takes hours... not kidding! And every task I want to do.. open a browser or another application... I get the spinning wheel.. and it takes forever but eventually completes the task.
The laptop is old.. I get that and I am ready to replace it with another MAC. The reason I am here requesting assistance is to try to get the laptop functional enough so I can run a time machine so I can transfer some data to my new MAC.
A word to the wise.. I am not an expert in MACs... I mostly use PC for business. I just know the basics of the MAC so if I am asked to do any procedure... I may need a little more guidance than a regular MAC user.
Please advise... thanks!!
