Another option that I don't belief has been mentioned yet is using an online backup service like BackBlaze, Carbonite, or CrashPlan (to name a few). I personally use BackBlaze in addition to a Time...

Dropbox isn't really a backup service. Think of it as a "folder" that syncs between your devices. For instance, at home on my Mac, I have a Dropbox folder. Let's say I put something in there like...

I say if you absolutely need Office, buy it. Don't try to get by with other programs that may not be as compatible, especially if it's Excel.

I'd say there's a world of difference between Tiger (10.4) and the current release, Mountain Lion (10.8). Granted, it's not so radically different that you wouldn't have any idea where to start if...

Whether you need it is up to you. Don't feel bad about "neglecting" the iMac though. I wouldn't call it that. As long as both devices fill a need and serve a purpose, that's all you need to...

I never used the trackpad on the Toshiba laptop you had, but I can tell you with utter certainty that it doesn't compare in any way to the ones that Apple makes. Honestly, once you start using Apple...

Matt,

One of the things I say to Windows users is, "You don't realize what a pain it is to have to fix a Windows machine until you don't have to do it anymore."

Welcome aboard.

Why not do an exchange and see if a different one works better for you? If you really think it was a dud computer, it might be worth looking into.

It all depends on what you want to do with your Mac. To me, there is no such thing as a "must-have app". Every user needs to do something different with his or her computer. Therefore, an app that...
