Operating Systems do get cluttered up and bogged down depending on what you are doing and what you have installed. I see many with Skype and Yahoo Messenger auto-launching, and that eats up resources and causes the machine to take longer to boot. A hard drive that is just about full also makes operation of the computer a lot slower. It could definitely be the hard drive dying down, and the Smart Utility recommendation is a good one, but if the drive checks out fine, you should try wiping the existing drive and reinstalling first, unless you are not happy with the current amount of hard drive space and are looking to upgrade anyway. I work all day long with iBooks that have 10GB drives, and a lot of those still work fine after 9 years, so I wouldn't assume the hard drive is bad.
