    New imac user
    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 . . .

    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 bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    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!
