At the risk of getting slammed, here is the question. I have a 2004 iMac 1.25 GHz Power PC G4 512 DDR SDRAM. And dial up. I can only get dial up in this location. If you want to waste your time telling me to move, it's your life. I can't move. Not now anyway. If I can swing the $ for the current iMac 21.5, double up the memory, can the sheer difference in the quantum leap of processor speed + RAM help complete most normal pageloads? I know it won't change bandwidth for big boy media functions. I just want to see a site load w/o me aborting to roll the dice on that working. I do need to do important blog type WP stuff & also read Calvin & Hobbes. Or use @#%&*! Gmail and not burst a blood vessel. Hate to get a cheap Windows & take my chances with that mess around. OK. Ready to duck. . ..
