    Talking New iMac
    Hello all...I have owned a MacBook Pro since August. Since January I have been considering getting a desktop as well. On Sunday I finally decided to take the dive. I bought a 20" iMac. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I have really enjoyed my transition fully to the Mac OSX world.

    I first purchased an iBook G4 in January of 06...a week later they announced the introduction of the Intel chips in the Macs. I read in forums that these Intel chips would allow users to dual boot..while the people at the Apple Store obviously told me this would never happen I decided to return my iBook anyway. Finally in August I decided I would buy the MacBook Pro after letting some of the first generation kinks work themselves out.

    Now that I have the iMac I have completely switched over. It is a wonderful thing. This iMac is probably the neatest looking designed machine I have ever owned. The few people who have seen it so far (who know very little about computers so they hadn't seen one) were in awe of it. Just thought I would share my new iMac excitement with you all!

    P.S. I removed my Windows Partition from my MacBook Pro about two months ago and got rid of my Windows desktop at the same time...I'm completely free!

    I've liked Macs for a long time but felt like I was stuck in the Windows world. When I heard Macs could run Windows I tossed by PC out the window. Ok, I sold it on eBay. I have the Windows partition and have used it twice in 3 months. Macs are great and feel the same happiness you do.
    Thanks for sharing! And welcome to the forum. (This place becomes addicting!!)

    Another "no windows" switcher. You'll never look back.

    I'm excited with you...cuz I know how it feels! Enjoy!

    btw, welcome to the Mac-forums. You'll find this a great place to discuss your new Mac and come back often it's nice to have you here.

    The amazing thing about Mac's is the swish and fancy animations and stuff.

    Yes, the iMac is a thing of beauty. I'm a recent switcher as well. My Dell 8200 is a very lonely dust collector now. The PC is there in case of the rare "need" to use it. The Mac is just so much more fun to use.

    The only time I've need Windows is when a hardware device doesn't provide a non-Windows firmware update method.

    But I've not used Windows at home since getting a Mac. I don't have a computer with Windows anymore.

    Specs:
    IMAC 20 inch dual core. 16 GB ipad.
    Right decision
    I'm on my second IMAC now, just got the 20 inch intel. I did throw my old pcee out the window, fed up with viruses and a poor OS. I've never been happier because I have to suffer windows at work and coming home to a real machine just makes you feel better. There are differences and I still get lost but you have a bunch of friends here who are always happy to help.
    Use the Forum, It works.

    I got my first Mac about three months ago got a 20" imac and I just love this machine sooooo much. It does everything I need it to do and more. No more blue screen of death. I still have a Windows machine I keep for the kids, and I don't care what they do with it. I will just reinstall every other month. funny thing is the kids beg me to use the Mac all the time. I don't blame them. When I get the money i will buy them one also. The Mac is just a well oiled machine, just does what it's suppose to do with out even a hic-up. I should have switched a long time ago.

    I love my Mac.

    I know exactly how you feel. I bought my iMac in September of last year, and that has been the best purchase I've made so far. I got fed up with having to reinstall the whole Window OS on my old PC every five months. Mac OS X has been running great with no problems since my purchase. That's roughly about eight months. Switching was one of the smartest decisions I've made.
