I have recently purchased an iMac 24" duo core and although it is physically impressive it certainly hasn't impressed me with its speed. I am running the Adobe Creative Suite and use the computer for designing. The designing I do is by no means complex, and comps with lower specs have performed much faster. Please help! I have already done the following: 1. Down loaded a System Optimiser program 2. Run the applications manager and nothing is showing more than 10% CPU usage 3. Update all my Adobe software 4. Currently downloading the latest OS-X system update. Should the update not change the current performance should I take the machine back? The Adobe software installed wasn't expensive (if you know what I mean) so could this be causing the issues? Please help!!!
