Hey everyone. I bought a new apple imac mini intel solo about a month or so ago. It has 1.5ghz, 512mb, Superdrive and 10.4.8. I am running the following: Lacie external hard drive (firewire) Hewlett-Packard copier/scanner/printer F340 (usb) Harmon Kardon Soundsticks with Sub (older usb style) Apple bluetooth mouse Apple bluetooth keyboard Hanns-G 19" widescreen display (DVI) I am on cable Earthlink. Anyway, I had the older G3 iMac 600mhz until it died. The iMac seems to do just about everything better than the mini The mini is slow. If you need to print, it takes forever. If you need to run Office, it takes forever. If you need to run anything that is not from apple it pretty much takes forever. I have done all system upgrades, etc. Any ideas or is the way these machines run? I am very dissapointed so far. I have always been a Apple fan but the PC's I have used recently (cring) have ran circles around this. Any ides what I could do to make it work better? Thanks everyone. You guys are the best.
