Unfortunately, that's not the "simplest" method. It's actually the most inconvenient one of all of them. I have to click "Print...", select PDF, then select "PDF to whatever" or specify a disk...

I have a mid-2011 27" iMac, and I have connected a set of Logitech Z-5500 5.1 speakers to it via digital optical cable. Although it doesn't compete with my home stereo system, the sound is quite...

I don't know if you noticed, but I didn't actually refer to them as "friends"... just "other Windows programmers" ;D My best friend switched to a Mac a week after he saw mine in action.

Is backing up just the library (iPhoto, Aperture, Devonthink, etc.) good enough?
