I'm coming on three weeks with mine. Many years with PC's so there is a learning curve for me (kinda like learning any new language) but pretty much every discovery is something that seems to me to be better/easier than same with PC. The thing I'm liking best overall is that the machine just sits there and runs. My learning isn't compromised by a troublesome machine or OS in the process. It's a different world. Liking it so far. (Other machine is Pentium 4; 3.4; XPhome; clean and fast -- but the iMac is faster)

Must put in a plug for AppleCare and ProCare. My few enquiries to AppleCare have been taken quickly and answered completely by a competent English-speakers. My weekly sessions via ProCare at the Apple Store using my own machine and addressing my own personal concerns with my own data have been Godsends. Whatever points of confusion I encounter, I simply note down and the next session gets me unconfused. I have been VERY impressed with this manner of doing business. These words from a skeptic/cynic that brings more than a decade of computer-anxiety along with me.
