    Many choices, I think . . .

    What MacOS are you running?

    I must admit I'm one of the few Luddites who doesn't IM much, but I think
    you can use AIM, Yahoo, iChat, Adium, . . . However, I have no knowledge
    about performance issues with any of these. My guess is your CPU is
    pretty slow in terms of what is needed to have a "good" experience.

    I trust other experts will chime in and correct me, and give you a better
    answer.

    Hey buddy. Take a look at aMSN for Mac. You might also enjoy Adium with is what I use. Adium allows you to use multiple services, aim, msn, google, Facebook,etc.

    I use aMSN. It supports a lot of features that other applications seem to always leave out, like offline messaging, and ink drawings (if you install a plugin).

    You might want to browse through the skins though. It's a pretty ugly looking program. :eek:
