You can copy the pictures to your Pictures folder, then delete the pics in the documents folder. To import your photos into iphoto, Open iPhoto click File>Import to iPhoto, choose the folder. and there ya go.

Where are you seeing the beach ball? Seeing that usually means that the system is working hard doing something. What are you doing at the time the beach ball appears?

Games on Facebook often require Flash and/or Java, so the first thing you should do is update both of those to the latest version possible for your machine.

Next, because Flash in particular really taxes a computer, you should make sure the machine is well-ventilated and not sitting on a pillow or your lap. As Dogbreath hinted, you may want to look into upgrading your RAM or freeing up a chunk of hard drive space (if you're running low) and running Disk Utility or OnyX to make sure your Mac is running in tip top form.

To get the best performance out of any game, quit (not just close) any other applications you have open, that will help too.

Click on the Apple logo on the top left and then click on About This Mac to get the basics. Here you will get the version of OS X, amount of RAM and processor most likely. Click on More Info (or something similar) to get more detailed information about all aspects of your computer..

The next time anyone asks for any specific spec, this is where you'd go to figure it out..
