Question about Apple 24" iMac Desktop
After upgrading from os x 10.5.8 to snow leopard 10.6.3 streaming movies from netflix became choppy/lagging. How can I fix this.
Run 'Software Update'
This will bring the OS up to 10.6.8
Keep running software update until the system is up to date.

Testimonial: "Thanks, however, system is currently at OS 10.6.8. I've tried updating Silverlight--no joy. What's frustrating is the Netflix ran great on OS 10.5.8. Only after the upgrade to 10.6.8 did I notice the difference in play back quality."

I don't know that you necessarily have to get rid of your computer. I have a G4 circa 2000 with 400 MHz processor. I run Tiger OS 10.4.1 and can run Illustrator CS on my machine.
It is not running at lightspeed mind you but it still works fine.
There may be some interim updates that you need before going to leopard... I would try talking to someone at an apple store or call tech support about it. Apple is really good about customer service.
Your eMac has to be "younger" than my tower G4 Gigabit Ethernet model so don't give up too soon. I don't think CS3 will use like 50% more resources compared to CS so your computer should be able to handle it.

If you have the instal disc boot up the mac with it holding down the c key. Once it has booted up you can then go up to the menus and use the change password command. Then restart. Hope this helps.

Usually, the beach ball indicates low memory, but it can also indicate lots of disk retries.
First stop would be Disk Utility, to see what the SMART status for the drive is If it shows bad, that's definitely your problem - if it doesn't show bad, it's still inconclusive.
You can also look for disk retries in the Console log, but that requires knowing precisely when the symptoms were happening, and is pretty boredom-intensive.
I'd boot this machine off an external OS drive and see if it showed the same symptoms. If yes, I'd look at testing the memory. If no, I'd replace the hard drive.
Permissions aren't going to be the problem if you've freshly reinstalled the system.
