Performance tuning OS X, how/where to start?
posted by wongcorgi to computers & internet (10 answers total) 5 users marked this as a favorite
I just picked up an Macbook Air and have read a lot of stories about beach balling, and poor performance in general. I did get the faster CPU and SSD model but I'd like to squeeze as much as I can out of it.
Are there any guides to help tweak OS X for maximum performance? Such as anything like Service Control manager for Windows, and the associated guides (ie. Black Viper's).
I've done a lot of tweaking on the windows side and wouldn't mind killing non essential stuff like printing, bonjour, ipod , etc..
Is this the command to list running services (i found this for 10.3)...?
