Just got a deal on ebay for a 20" imac 1.8ghz g5, gig of ram 160gb hdd, office professional 2004 retail in box for 895.00.

I think this is a good deal, I really want an intel mac.. so will probably sell this one soon but figured it was to good of a deal to pass up. Get my feet wet with this one.

So, since I know nothing about macs.. someone want to point me in the right direction on learning the basics, around the os etc?

You will not be let down.
If you want to get some good background on the OS before you dive in, just check out apple's site. Go to and they have a lot of information.
