About Us

Hey there,

Eric and Lorena. We are the team (though just two of us) behind macbookproslow.com.

The reason why we created this site is that we hear many fellow MacBook users complain about their Macs running slow and don’t know how to optimize it. We kinda feel it’s our “responsibility” (shamelessly) to share some tips and guides that may work to help solve the problems so ideally, you don’t have to visit an Apple Genius Bar or a computer repair shop. We also share general tricks about fixing common macOS related issues during our everyday use.

We are advocates of Apple, and we’ve been using MacBook Pros for many years.

Eric currently uses a 15-inch MacBook Pro (2017) for both work and personal errands, while Lorena holds a 13-inch MacBook Pro. We still have an old mid-2012 MacBook Pro with a traditional spinning hard drive, but it’s showed its age and we decide to put it in our “mini tech museum” at home.

Anyway, we have gained some knowledge about Macintosh computers and macOS (used to be called Mac OS X) and felt it’s fun to share out from time to time. If you find our tips and guides helpful, the best way to show your appreciation is sharing it out and perhaps leaving a comment.

We used to live in San Francisco but now we are traveling around the world. If you have any questions about the content on this website, please feel free to contact us. We may not be able to reply you promptly, but we’ll try our best.

Care your MacBook Pro and enjoy life!

– Eric & Lorena
