I have a 2011 MacBook Pro that's been dropped from 3-4 feet a couple of times. After this happened it started running real slow like and I thought I'd messed up the harddrive or something. So I ran Apple Hardware Test (extended) and it reports no trouble. Blackmagic disk test reports 80MB/s read and write speed.


The thing is, everything is working fine except the system seems to be "freezing" very frequently. So when I copy a file for instance, it starts real fast like it should, and then it pauses for a couple of seconds, then resumes etc.


Things like opening and closing windows, switching between workspaces, saving files, opening new tabs etc is also very choppy and I'm looking at the spinny wheel a lot. It's not a software issue, i ran a clean install and it didn't improve.


Im gonna open her up tomorrow and have a look if something's loose or there's a cable glitch or something but I know nothing about hardware so I just thought I'd ask for some tips what I should look for etc.


Here's the output from xbench for the heck of it. I'm not sure what to read form the low disk test score.
