IMac slow after Mavericks Installation

Posted on Dec 11, 2013 4:50 AM, Apple Support Communities - OS X Mavericks | discussions.apple.com

I have just upgraded my Mid 2011 iMac to OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) and the machine became extremely slow, folder items take a long time before being displayed show, apps take a very long time before launching and the machine is remarkably slow.

 

Machine specs are as follows:

iMac 27-inch, Mid 2011

Processor  3.4 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory  16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048 MB

Serial Number  D2*******HJW

Software  OS X 10.9 (13A603)

 

Do I/Can I do any hardware upgrades to solve this as I think the specs are very good and may not be the reason.

 

I would appreciate any help I could get
