The MacBook pro, air, or even the iMac, at the time of purchase were amazingly quick and for someone looking to access data stored in them, the response time one must say was amazingly fast. However, as time moves on you slowly but steadily come to realize that your favorite MAC device has lost out on speed. At one stage it was your pride, but of late, it is just ridiculously slow and at times getting access to data stored in the device could take a lot of time. You would love to restore MacBook pro right to its original settings and that is hugely positive for the device.
