    So, I have a 20" iMac 4Gb RAM 2.66GHz Processor. Well, I recently purchased a new 11" Macbook Air it has taken over the iMac.... what are some creative uses for my iMac? By the way.... the internet on the iMac is always veery slow.... but what are some creative things to use my iMac for since my MBA is my primary computer?

    Use it as a giant Wi-Fi hotspot?
    Use it to store files?
    Use it to watch movies and videos on its bigger screen?
    Install Linux on it?
    Install Windows on it?
    Use it as a secondary monitor for you Macbook?

    put it up for sale on ebay ... :p The smartest choice isn't always the most creative one. You'll probably get between 3 and 400 $.

    Put a fresh install of Snow Leopard/Lion on it, use it as a backup machine/Internet, basic machine, or sell it.

    I'd hope so :) I did the same with just a lesser iMac a few weeks before the 2011s came out and got $375 for it.

    Lot's of good suggestions here for thing to do with that iMac... although if you're asking what you can do with it, you probably don't need it in the house.
