If you are using a non-US keyboard, you need to set the preference in the control panel to your internationalisation (eg. English/GB), as Macs assume US keyboards.

CD / DVD writer is included as a slot drive.

Office for Mac will open Office documents, as will LibreOffice.

Using a Mac is probably easier than a Windows PC. And if you need Windows you can always use bootcamp!
Agree 100% here

I was a windows user for 15years until my gf bought me my first imac 27.

Bootcamp is amazingly handy. So you still techniqually have a windows and a mac machine, but all on one computer! Bootcamp comes with your imac on CD also it installs all your drivers etc automatically so its perfect for newbies (like myself).

I will +1 Microsoft office for MAC. It looks better than the windows version too!

Hope this helps.
