I have an older iMac (first of the Intel Duo Core) that is running extremely slowly - the rainbow ball spins for 30 seconds between most clicks.  I think it's just overloaded with too much old stuff.  I have most of my files stored on Dropbox. I want to restore it to the factory settings before giving up and buying a new computer.  I don't want to restore from my time machine because I don't want to bring along the old problems.  I have saved my iPhoto libray to an external drive.  Can I do the same with my iTunes?  Or can I somehow sync it to my iPad, iPhone or Air so that I don't lose my music?  If so, can you tell me how?  Also, this computer is too old to sync to iCloud.  Thank you for any help you can give!
