Originally known as "The New iMac" the iMac G4 was created to replace the iMac G3 as Apple's all-in-one desktop computer. The G4 is easily recognizable by its swiveling monitor mounted above the hemispherical computer. Steve Jobs quoted it as being "a design that will last till the next decade."

Are the videos online, DVDs or other?

What are you loading? Large (GB worth) files do take time to transfer.

We need more info. What size drive, how much capacity have you used on the HDD? How much RAM do you have? what version of Flash Player do you have. Every time there is a major OS software update from Apple you have to make sure you check which version of flash player you have because Apple usually does notinclude the latest versions. Please provide this info so we can diagnose further.

It's funny cause I got into a quarrel with another Patron here for defending you when he downvoted you for asking a question in the answer sec. LOL

No need for the down vote who ever you are, that was snotty. OK he hasn't given an answer yet, but sometimes you have to get the facts first.

+ vote for the questions.

Thanks Mayer. It's funny how people are quick to wield the sword, when they do the same exact thing.

If your Hard Drive

has little or no free (empty) space your computer will slow. You should leave 10-20% of the drive empty for swap and temporary files.

On an 80GB drive it that be 8-16GB free. On a 10GB drive 1 to 2GB.

If this answer is acceptable please return and mark it.

Good Luck,

N.

IF? there's no way you can tell what it is till the PO offers more details. So IF I worded my questions differently, they would be the same as your "RESPONSE"!!

Next time I'll word it around a bunch of "IF's" and avoid the downvote.
