Hi so a friend of mines Macbook pro has started to act up recently. The model is a 2013/14 one with an i5 and 500gb hdd. it's taking minutes to just open something like chrome.

We've done the pram and smc reset and it's still done nothing.

I know it's a hard drive and they slow down but not to this extent, it's basically unusable to the point she can't get any school work done.

And no she cannot upgrade to an ssd that's too expensive.

Any tips guys? She came to me cause she knows I'm a techy guy but I've tried and so far it hasn't been working out. Any help would be great thanks:))))))
