Well, yesterday I got my new iMac in the mail and it was awesome. Everything works great - except Google Earth. Everytime I open it and click on something on the map the computer completly freezes (except for the cursor) and will not respond. Everything: option apple esacpe, lots of clicking, and finally just holding down the power button for 5 seconds. I had my friend send me two older versions of Google Earth but the exact same thing happened. I am running 10.4.8 and you can see my hardware in my sig.
