    Everything on my mac is running slower and slower, I have the last ver. of the eMac, and still running the 256 Ram, and 12 GB of storage with an exturnal of 250 GB. I dont know why, if you need a list of apps or anything just ask. I also dont have the 100 I need right now to upgrade the ram.

    Plus if anyone could tell me if and how I can use my external as my main drive, but it is a usb, that sometimes hikups being on my mac for access, it will access it sometimes 5 min after I boot, so I may not want to, or is it a glitch of my mac.

    Thanks in advance,

    What do you use the Mac for? Is there anything in Activity Monitor (check All Processes) that's using up a lot of your CPU or RAM? You won't be able to boot your eMac from the hard drive, unfortunately. Do you have a Firewire connection for the drive? You could boot from that. :)
