so, i don't want to download limewire on my beautiful new macbook pro.

i figured i could download songs (some, not a LOT) from zippyshare.com or use mediaconverter.org to get songs... this works quickly and perfectly, i was very happy when i got them on my itunes (i only did 2 so far)...
i was just wondering - if i download a bunch of them are they gonna slow my computer down a lot?

i wanted to delete the files from the "downloads" into trash and then empty it so i don't have tons of music files all over the computer hogging space.. will that delete the song? and if i delete it how do i know if the file is gone for good?

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

No, but you will be breaking the law. Only downloading some does not make what you are doing any less severe.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
