I am inheriting an old Core 2 Duo 1.83 17" iMac 5,2 with 2GB of RAM. It is functioning but very slow at the moment probably because of all the garbage loaded on it. What I would like: My wife would like to be able to get on the internet and get recipes and look at news and maybe some email. Nothing more. What I plan on doing: I would like to wipe the hard drive clean and then reload OSX. Not sure which version would run the best or if I should just get the latest that it can take. Is this reasonable to do? Will it work and be relatively useful? Do you have any suggestions? How old a Mac do you have and does it still run well?
