    Hello everyone,

    I am using a 3 week old 2011 iMac with Lion. I have been having some problems. The first is that flash videos cause my system to "flip out" what I mean by that is that it will either freeze my machine or the video will flicker or get stuck (almost like a stuck record). I'm also having problems with memory. I have 4gb of ram and things seem to run choppy, is 4gb too little? If so can someone tell me what a good type of ram would be on Amazon? Thanks.

    4Gb of RAM should be plenty... Have you installed the 10.7.1 update? It may help solve some of your issues.. one of the main fixes is that it "solves an issues that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in safari." Try the update and see if that solves the problem.
