comment What's slowing down my Mac?
It's an option I've considered, and I know it will likely solve the issue. but it doesn't address my main concern. Why does this computer perform worse than my 2006 macbook did essentially performing the same basic tasks. I'd like some proof that apple software really has become that much worse, and it's not some other problem. I prefer diagnosing the issue over throwing money at the problem.

Yep. Disk was the first thing I suspected, so I started with that.

Looked at the logs. I look at them from time to time for various reasons, and I don't really see anything too crazy. I posted a few log items though.

@Allan it reports "no issues found"

comment Time machine always needs to restart
@tim.rohrer just added that info. I didn't reformat the disk though. Even though that's a lot of work, I'm willing to do that if there's reasonable evidence that that will do anything. I'm a bit skeptical. The disk itself is probably ext4, and I haven't heard of anyone solving problems by reformatting. But could be wrong.

Overall health is 85.5%. Doing the "quick" self-test showed no errors.

Just downloaded it. DriveDX doesn't report any problems. Most of the indicators are at 100%, and some at 85%.

Hi @Allan, added the output of diskutil list and the s.m.a.r.t. status was indeed good. But nervous about DriveDX, so I'm doing a bit of research to see what others are saying about it ;)

comment In Mail.app 6.0, is there a way to drag-select parts of message bodies?
This should be re-opened. This is very much a real issue (though clearly not reproducible by everyone).

Weird! It worked, I thought this would be a hardware limitation, not a software one. Thanks!
