Hello all, Iam new to the forums, but hope to be around for awhile. I don't have a mac yet, but I plan on getting one ASAP.
I have a few questions before I switch.
1. Can you use the educational discount at the apple retail stores?
2. Is there software out there like DVDxCopy, where you can backup DVD onto DVD's?
3. I am thinking about getting the 20" iMac, and would like to do video editing, and creating my own DVD's, what amout of RAM should I go with?
4. On apples site, it shows that the iMacs come with iLife '04, would they still ship '04 even with '05 coming with the new line. Is this a type 0 on apples part?
Thank you ahead of the time for you efforts in anwsering the questions, any other insite will help.

2. Yes, the easiest way is to just buy Roxio Toast, or you can get MactheRipper, and then convert it, and burn it
3. If it is light video editing, 512 would be fine. But if it's something you might be serious about, 1 GB or Higher
4. Not sure - Call Apple - 1800MYAPPLE
BTW - Welcome to the Forums!

1. Yep just need your edu ID with you. They'll apply it instore.
2. not sure. as i use my windows box currently
3. if you going to be working on video and photos... go with as much as you can afford, . i would say personally nothing less than a gig.
4. any new computer you buy now with have either ilife '05 installed. or thrown in the box for you, :-)
You wont be dissapointed with the iMac. Just got my g-friend on one. She's spends more time with it than me.

roxio popcorn can copy dvds, but not protected ones, for those youd need to take a simple 3 step process which I will not be going over here.
