I've been reading and it sounds like the best I can do is update the software to Lion and order additional 3 GB of memory - but is that enough to run Lion? Or am I better off just upgrading to snow leopard?   Also, if upgrading how do I do a backup or could I take imac to the local Apple Store and they could help?  I inherited this imac and I love it but I know technical support, etc. has expired so not sure what help I can get?
