My dad was telling me one day that the mini PPC was running slow. He told me to find the disk so he could start over again and reinstall. So I did and I backed up almost everything (I forgot quicken stuff oops) and reinstalled it. After that it ran great like new which was not unexpected. The computer is only a year old. It has the 1.42 Ghz and 512 mb ram. Now when I used it which that started to decline because I got my macbook for school I noticed that it did run slower then when we first got it or after the reinstall. Now what could have happened. He kept saying it might be a virus, but I told him that this was a mac and that was almost impossible. The only thing I could think of is that there was alot of stuff in documents but not that much maybe 10 gigs of stuff and some programs like Microsoft office, Tiger Woods 05, Google Earth, Quicken, and some other stuff. It had the lastest updates installed. I still can't think of what could of been making the computer run slower that it was able to be noticed.
