If there’s RAM slots surely it can be upgraded? Has a RAM module died?

Phone call to your local independent Mac expert. I used MacMan in Brighton & they have another store in T.Wells.

Back up your data and do a fresh install of the OS. If it's only cube years old will run the latest version.

Hello mate I erased hd,took seconds
Reinstalled os took 20 mins
Working like a dream wow
Cheers
I bought it six years back but specs seem ok
8 meg ram 1tb
It's loaded Sierra,is that the newest os?
I'm wondering if that's what was slowing it down
People say iPhones get sluggish as os gets fancier
What programs are essential? Anti virus etc? Thnx
I'm not going let kids run games anymore
My dad's original iMac CRT screen still works
So I guess for simple web surfing this should still be ok? Thnx

My experience is exactly this. My iMac is nearly ten years old. I have upgraded the RAM and it runs fine. I don't use any other apps or programs. I think it's on Yosemite and can't move on, so until that's no longer supported all is fine in terms of security.
My MBA is 6 years old and runs High Sierra. Again no extra apps/programmes to keep it safe.
One potential weakness is the MS Office package being quite old now. I only have that to make it easier for using Word Excel and Ppt.

I always recommend people consider a pre-owned Mac over a new laptop on MS. Unless its business or a gift, then it's a new one
