    I'm going on 3+ months with my iMac and still loving it. No issues whatsoever (touch wood)! Awesome computer, have Mac Office so no need for Windoze anymore. Having saidf that I installed Vista with no problems at all. Mainly to play MS Flight Sim which runs really well by the way...

    24 hours have passed and after a full evening of using my new Mac I can safely say I love it. The speed and performance is great. I installed Parallels with Win XP Pro tonight and could not believe how fast everything continued to run. Been able to swith between XP and OSX in an instant without a drop in performance was a welcome surprise to me. XP will only be used for Usenet access as I have not found any Mac software that I like yet to replace Newsleecher.

    My old PC was 3 years old so this really is a huge leap forward and it looks great.

    A happy new switcher


    p.s. I'm contemplating buying a flight sim game. I'll either go the Microsoft route or maybe consider the Mac flight sim which I heard is meant to be good (the name escapes me right now).

    The stock video card that comes with the 24" is nVidia's 7300GT, which is about on par, maybe a shade slower, than the ATi X1600 on other models.

    However, the build-to-order option on the 24", the 7600GT, while not being a beast of a card, would still be better than either the 7300GT or X1600.

    I'm loving the Mac more and more, so glad I decided to take the leap and wave goodbye to my XP pc.

    The movie trailer access using Front Row is brilliant and I only discovered this existed by accident, I was browsing everywhere possible on my new toy

    Did you install Vista so you can boot to it?

    Hey I'm new too. I just bought one on Sunday and couldn't believe I just had to plug it in, connect to router and switch on. Amazing. I will never go back now. Also I have my old PC next to me on the desk, also connected to my router and the Mac just sees the shared files without having to network blah, blah. Love it, love it. Just need my driving license for it. Can't get used to installing by just dragging. I feel sure I'm doing something wrong
