Rather than ship apps in an exe installer, zip file etc.. Mac apps are usually enclosed in a DMG.

Think of a DMG as a virtual disk, a file based install CD (although they can be writeable). You...

There's usually a switch in there. The speakers are redirected to the headphone jack using circuitry instead of the OS.

Not much you can do until it goes to the store.

I don't think that's always the case, they do test things at factory.

You do have to remember that these things are delivered and delivery drivers don't always handle things with care.

Logic Studio is only 320-ish in the UK. Comes with a massive sound effect library and synth plugins.

It can mix 5.1 audio too.

All you then need is a MIDI controller keyboard.

Do you have an aluminum iMac?

They lock up due to a bad ATI driver. This has been fixed now, check for the update if you don't have it.

As they shrink the CPUs they tend to get cooler anyway.

If someone could invent a cooling device powered by warm air it might be possible for them to be cooler :)

Rather than slim down the laptops, reduce the internal space required for the components and increase the battery capacity.

A laptop with an battery life of 8 hours would be useful.

It is cheeky given all the problems with new iMacs locking up.

I've had about 3 crashes with Leopard so far, so their superiority complex is unfounded.

I've been using it for 3 days now. Got two songs written and it's easily been the most relaxed composing I've done for years.

So far it's crashed only once and...

Sounds like it's latching somehow, either bad logic circuit or the button itself is stuck.

Why buy a professional workstation and then be a cheap-skate with the RAM?

The RAM is very important, if you have problems with the RAM you'll have a very unstable system.
