Question

Yes, The current crop of iMacs running on OS x10.6 or better will run SecondLife well. Your iMac 7.1 is 6 year old technology and very behind the eight ball in regards to the current state of 3D graphics virtual environments. The Graphics on that iMac 7.1 only has 128 or 256 mb of Graphics Memory on it and to be sure can't display the advanced graphics options of SL.

Here are the Requirements from the SL System Requirements page

Mac OS X Minimum Requirements Recommended
Internet Connection*: Cable or DSL Cable or DSL
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 or better Mac OS X 10.6 or better
Computer Processor: 1.5 GHz Intel based Mac 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or above
Computer Memory: 512 MB or more 3 GB or more
Screen Resolution: 1024x768 pixels 1024x768 pixels or higher
Graphics Card**:
  • ATI Radeon 9200 and above
  • OR NVIDIA GeForce 2, GeForce 4
  • ATI: 4850, 4870
  • OR NVIDIA: 9800
