Just thought I'd introduce myself as you may be seeing a lot of ?'s from me in the future.I'm due to take delivery of a 27 inch 2.93ghz with 16 gigs of ram on Friday.

I'm from Oklahoma, and My hobbies are ham radio, photography, genealogy and collecting/using straight razors and other wet shaving equipment.

Welcome

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Welcome to the forums and to the world of Mac.

That's a very nice iMac you ordered. Feel free to ask away and don't be shy. In the meantime, have you looked over any of the useful tips/info for Switchers on Apple's Support site?
Apple - Support - Switch 101
Apple - Support - Mac 101

We also have some helpful "sticky" threads here to help make things smoother and answer those FAQs.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Thanks all. I've been devouring everything I can and have bookmarked those two links lol. I started my conversion by buying an iPad, which has seen more use than my pc lately.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

Same here... I have owned a few iPods, but it was the iPad that really turned me. I went the cheaper route and got a Mac Mini, and I am VERY happy with it!

Enjoy your iMac!
