So I just got my mom's old iMac. I'm using it right now, and it is really slow. I'm uploading all my CD's onto it, and it takes like 1-2 minutes to upload each song. Given, I am on AIM and UG at the same time, but I didn't think it would affect the speed that much.


I don't remember this computer being this slow. Its pretty crazy.


So how do you speed up a computer? I probably sound pretty stupid because I don't know anything about computers, but any help is appreciated. Thanks

You must have a crappy computer because mine never slows down when I use AIM.

buy a new computer
Those things are so f*cking old it's scary, I doubt they even have 256 MB ram
or at least the iMacs at my school are
