Default Macbook/AIM question

Hey everyone,
I just got a Macbook for grad school and I'm loving it. HOWEVER, when i try to download AIM for Macs it almost downloads the whole install file, but always times out. I've checked my internet connection and there's tons of free space on the hard drive. So I'm a little clueless. Any suggestions? Help sections have been futile and sent me in circles=so frustrating.
Thanks,

Well, your first problem is that you're using the AIM client

Why not just use the built in iChat client to connect to AIM, or if you're looking for something a little more robust, give Adium a shot: http://www.adiumx.com/

I use Adium on my Mac have no complaints.

It runs on the pidgin (formerly gaim) open source backend and supports multiple protocals, which means that with the one client you can be logged into AIM, Yahoo, MSN, GroupWise Messenger, and G-talk just to name a few.

I would certainly recommend Adium over pretty much any other IM client on the mac.

Although the built in ichat client could be cool if you want to do some of the advanced video effects contained there in.
