Just bought myself a 20" iMac
After many years of Windows PC ownership I've finally decided to switch to a Mac, more specifically a 20" iMac with wireless keyboard and mouse. It has not arrived yet but should be here during the coming week and I cannot wait :) I'm sure I'll be on here asking many newbie questions soon.

Sneeks :)

Congrats! You wont regret it! I got my mac mini a year ago and have brought a macbook recently. I year on and still not looked back to windows. Im sure everyone here will agree, once you have had a taste of a mac, you wonder why you didnt switch sooner! XP seems so old fasion compared to it!

I have had mine for about three weeks amazing machine, like many others I wish I would have seen the light along time ago. :spook:

Congratulations I can assure you that you will fall in love with it, everything makes sense and I have had no real problems with it.

Chasincharpchui - It seems unlikely that they would put a worse video card in a bigger space, however they might have done for some reason. What is your source because often internet rumors are unfounded, and according to the apple website the two chips in the 24 inch are better than the top one in the 20 inch. While I would advise that apples statistics are somewhat exaggerated because both games work better on nVidia anyway.

It arrived today :) Only just got it all set up and working but currently having net connection issues with my Telewest Blueyonder cable broadband. The data connection keeps dropping every 5-10 minutes and I have to reset the modem. I've had this problem for 3 days prior to the arrival of the Mac so it is not to blame.

So far loving the Mac, will explore more on Friday night.

Congrats. I just left 'the dark side' and joined the MAC family. Still getting used to OS X but so far I love it.

My 17" iMac is going to arrive soon. I can't wait until I can put my hands on my first Mac. I'm so excited.

My iMac is the best computer I have ever owned. 1.5 years and still going strong.
