Well folks I have been using my new imac for about a month now. I am happy to report that my only issues are part of the normal learning curve. Other than having to look something up in a book when I can't figure it out, I have zero problems using my new imac. I don't mean to turn this into an anti-microsoft rant, but I finally found the last two applications I need to totally divorce myself from windows. So now My windows box is an overly expensive gamer system now. If the types of games I like to play ever get released on osx then that gamer system will becomes a really big myth tv box.
I LOVE MY NEW IMAC.

Haha, don't hold your breath... I'm not really pro-windows but Mac's will never play games the way a windows "clunk" does.

SM out
