What are you talking about?  My iMac G5 17" (1.8Ghz, 1G RAM) is one of
the nicest machines I've ever used.  If it's a system with only the
factory 256M of RAM, that's the reason it's slow - 512M seems to be the
"sweet spot" for OS X.

I've got 512M in both of my 1.25ghz Mac minis, and they're *really*
