Well I finally sucked it up and picked up a 2.4GHz MBP with 2 Gigs of ram. For the past few days its been running very slow, i.e. the stupid little color wheel. When I restart the computer or turn it on I can't use it for about 3 minutes, sometimes more. The top menu bar and the dock take forever to load. All that's there is my wallpaper. I still have about 52 Gigs of space remaining. Also, some programs take 3-4 seconds to open. I ran the Disk Utilities and have restarted many times and it still seems to be fairly slow. Any help would be great guys. Thanks.
