    Specs:
    MacBook - White - 2.0GHz C2D - 2GB RAM - 120GB HD
    Apple ID and .Mac
    If I already have an Apple ID, and I would love for the same name as my .Mac account I will be getting in about a month. Is there any way to transfer the Apple ID to .Mac, or can I just enter the .Mac name as DavisCollins, same as my Apple ID, and none will be the wiser?
    ex.

    Apple ID: DavisCollins

    .Mac Account: DavisCollins


    Is this possible?

    Thanks!
    -Davis

    you can change that in your Apple ID preferences. The Apple ID is just your e-mail address.
