I have issues with iphoto and photoshop with the little spinning thingy after I'm on forawhile.
Sure they will be faster...2-3 years of improvements (2008 vs. 2011) will definitely make the 2011 iMacs faster.
As far as the "little spinning thingy"...this can be caused by a bunch of things that are not necessarily due to the age of the computer (especially a relatively "not old" 2008 iMac).
You can get the "little spinning thingy" on newer computers as well...it can happen due to computer "misuse" by users. In your case...(with 2 gig of ram) a ram upgrade could help as well.
Which is a LOT CHEAPER than a new computer!!!
