When I bought this computer I did not specify much memory-- only 512K RAM.
Over time this system has gotten slower and slower-- to the point of
exasperation. After cleaning out a host of temporary files and defragging my
hard drive it was only slightly better. On a whim I ordered 2G of RAM and
when I replaced the 512K with 2G it was back up to speed. What a difference!
Wow-- 1T RAM-- that's really something!

I love my iMac!
The only problem I have with my iMac is of my own doing. I didn't buy
the operating memory I should have because I don't have the resources
to pay another $600 to get me what I now would like to have.
I should have listened to my son in law who built his own PC computer
with a terrabyte of memory. That's what you learn with a PhD in
He hasn't touched Windows 7 as yet but is hoping it will be the
system on his new computer at the university where he teaches when he
goes back to classes this fall. He is in a situation where he can play
around with a new operating system and has the technical knowledge
to solve problems he may find.
