    I have a new Late 2013 iMac that I purchased back in January. I have noticed it running extremely slow. It has 8GB of RAM and my memory pressure is always green. I did a speed test of the performance and it seems very low. Is this normal, or should I take it to Apple to have it looked at?

    Its not normal. You can try reinstalling osx reparing disk permissions. If its an easy ride take it to the store. My old ancient macbook gave me 80/90

    I actually have OS X running off an external thunderbolt SSD because this thing was so ungodly slow. That drive works great. I use this one for storage and bootcamp but it is SOO SLOW. I am actually running Yosemite on it. Should I put Mavericks back on it before taking it in?

    The problem might be yosemite related. Its a beta. Did you try this test on mavericks?

    Looks like the HDD might be on its last legs.

    Restart and don't use Chrome and you will be back to normal.
