    27" imac sloooooow, graphics?

    Haha I don't think it would even boot up with 512mb... I remember getting an extra 1mb ram for my amiga 500 and thinking it was the bomb! Have you got extra ram or just the same spec? I do have 6music streaming constantly so that might have something to do with it if your's is fine.

    I HATE my design job...

    Holy crap! That's hideous! Get out now! I would seriously think about getting some legal advice. You might be able to make some demands and if he doesn't comply get some compensation or at least make sure no one else ends up in the same boat as you.
