Hi,

I was hoping someone might be able to assist. I have a stock 2010 iMac, 4GB ram, i3 dual core at 3.2GHz. Running Mavericks.

Even though I have very fast broadband, there is delay at loading up safari pages etc and I find my iMac is sluggish in general.

Would a boost in RAM help me? I don't do editing or any intensive tasks like that I just want a boost in day to day tasks. Of course, it doesn't have an SSD either.

Thanks

I would go with an SSD. Adding more RAM might also be good, but SSD is what makes the real difference.
