Are we talking about your 3 year-old iMac? If so...how much ram does it have? Minimum for Lion is 2 gig.

You might want to install a cleaning utility called ONYX and let that run a few cleaning routines for you.

Titanium's Software • Download

Be sure to download the correct version for your OS.
There is a lot of info on ONYX on this forum and how people use it, so have a look around.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

You could always get the Track Pad for it since you found out how nice the one on the MBP works.
