A friend of mine just got his new I-Mac and ask me to come over and help hem set it up. Can someone tell me what I need to know to setup an I-Mac before I go over? I have setup a lot of Windows PC's (Dell, HP, ect..) but never an I-MAC. The 1st power on, is there something that need to be full in? Any Info up front would be great.

Plug in the keyboard to the back of the iMac, plug the mouse into an available USB port on the keyboard, plug in the power cord to the back of the mac and then the wall, and finally power on the iMac. That's it. Everything should be in the box and should take no more than 10 mins.

Sit back and watch how it "just works."

I bought one yesterday and after being a windows user for the last 20 years I cannot understand why I waited - brilliant stuff.
