I just got a used Macbook Air (The original 2008 model) for writing purposes only. It came with Mac OS X 10.6.8 installed + Office for Mac 2008. However it's very slow and I have tried tools (like TinkerTool and Onyx) to speed it up and turn off the 'eye candy' but it still goes sluggish after around 20-25 minutes of usage. I have tried turning off 'indexing' by 'spotlight' and usual tricks I could find online but nothing worked for me.
I think it's best if I revert back to the original OS version this shipped with (OS X 10.5?). Here are my questions:
How would I revert back to the original OS? (I don't have any installation disks and I think before giving it to me the original owner wiped the hard disk clean and just installed the Office for mac 2008)
How would I make sure I don't loose my 'Office for Mac 2008'? Do I need to write down the key from somewhere?
Please help me out, I'm a Linux guy (and geek at that) but very new to Mac OS (This is my first Mac)
