I bought the 24' intel imac when it first came out the end of 2006, and used it ever since, mostly for web browsing, managing pictures and musics using iphoto and itune. A few weeks ago, I noticed the slowdown when I using safari, and it has been slower and slower since. I realized this was due to the dying of the hard drive, so I backed up my data immediately (painfully slow but I did it) when I got a chance. Now what I need you guys advise. I don't know if it is worth to get it fixed and if so how, considering it is a old mac still with Tiger on it. I am not tech savvy, so I don't know if I can just do a resinstallation of the OS, or should I put in a new hard drive. any recommendation for that? How much would it cost? any comments and suggestions will be much appreciated.
