    This should really be in the iMac section. That being said, have you ran Activity Monitor while you sync and see if you're running out of resources (RAM, CPU usage)?

    As mentioned open activity monitor and see what's going on. I can't even tell mine iDevices are syncing or restoring on my iMac.
