Please download and run EtreCheck, created by one of own colleagues here in ASC. It is a diagnostic tool that's very useful to us in finding problems. Also it will give us further specs on your Mac. After it runs post the log file here. It will contain no personal information.

Hello karosoza

Apps Problems depends on many things as your system version, Make sure you have the latest Version on the system firmware on your mac.

And Why don't you get newer mac? They're more advanced and will not be broken very soon.

Actually, if you are running Lion as stated in your specs you won't be able to run Etrecheck as that requires Mountain Lion or later. What you might do instead is to install Mac OS on an external drive, boot from that and test. If it runs as expected then the issue is probably with software you've installed ad a clean install would be recommended.

Firmware updates are usually pushed with system upgrades. So my guess would be if the OP is running Lion, then the firmware is up to date enough for that system. I would't want the OP to update or upgrade until the issues are resolved. In these instances upgrades only exacerbate the problems.
