Mac geeks

Any hard-core Mac geeks on my flist?  My computer seems to be running a lot slower than it should, and I have a lead on doing some more freelance work from home, so I'd like to make sure it's running the best it can.  It's a dual-core iMac G5, bought in July of 07, which I know is a little old in computer years, but still, it should not be taking this long to start up the Adobe products, for once thing. 

(Oh, wow.  I had thought I had the memory maxed out, but apparently I only have 1GB in there, and it can go up to 3, although I'm also seeing some things about keeping it in matched pairs.  But that's definitely a place to start!)

Anyway, if there's any way I can barter for some tech support -- graphic design, a home-cooked meal, my eternal gratitude -- let's talk!

My amazing friends got together and gave me an incredibly generous gift certificate to the Apple store for my birthday. After some reflection, I decided that my greatest need was to replace my dying Palm Pilot -- with a brand-new 32GB iPhone 3GS. (You may now pause to wipe the drool off your keyboard.) I'm so excited, I was actually petting the box in the store before we got it open. :)

I spent most of yesterday transferring data and checking out apps and being amazed at how easily it does some of the things I've been kludging on the Palm. But now I'm looking for recommendations. Anyone got any great apps to share? Which ones are worth paying for?
