for using photoshop and dream weaver..you're definently going to want more than 128mb ram....I'd max it out, and then you should have absolutely no problems.....you should at least have 512mb ram I think..

to find out the specs, just go to the apple menu in the top left corner of the screen, and click "about this mac". that'll give you processor info, ram, and if you click "more info" it'll give you a lot more information about the hardware and everything. to find out how much free hard drive space you have, just double click on the hard drive icon on your desktop, and it should say either at the top or bottom of that window how much free space you have.

Another place to look at Mac performance is Finder > Applications > Utilities > Activity monitor and click open monitor from the top menu bar

psychotoe - Just to clarify something for you, since you're new to Apple. It sounds like you have yourself an iBook, not an iMac. Congratulations on the new machine, and welcome to the forums.
