My sister has a iMac flat panel g4. 700 mhz and 256 mb of ram. it is running really slow. What tools can I use to help it run faster? Let me tell you what the activity monitor says : for cpu: use it at 9 system is at 4, threads at 94, processes at 36 for system memory: wired 38.37, active 36.27, inactive 65.91 used 140 there are alot of precess's going too. I have the kernel task at 31.20mb or real memory window server at 14.9 activity monitor at 13.25 finer at 2.98 login window at 2.66 at cupsd, system uiserve, atsserver, dock, pm tool, coreservicesd, lookupd, pbs, and more!!! and that's with no programs running. I know that I need more ram period. But short of that what else can i do?
