    I have an 8 year old 24" iMac with 8gb ram and 1tb sta hard drive.
    When processing photos, my iMac will eventually freeze up. It is hot to the touch also.
    Can it be saved or is it time for a new iMac to process my images?

    What OS X version are you running on it? When did the iMac start having the issues?

    My iMac has always run hot, but since Friday I have been dealing with the freezing.
