    Well, I went and did it.
    I am officially on my way to being a switcher. Today I ordered a 20" iMac base with Leopard and iWork 08 installed. It's supposed to ship within 3 days. I guess I need to ready the PC for transfer and then... I don't know sledge hammer.
    What should I expect in the conversion?

    just remember that your mac is not a windows machine, so learn to use it as a mac, other than that just enjoy it!

    Good Point. It is really just changing habits and the way you are used to doing things.
    Get used to dragging and dropping and Spring Loaded folders to move files around.

    Oh

    and get used to security, lack of viruses and an OS that doesn't need constant re-installs to keep things running smoothly

    One tip when yoou get the new mac - turn its firewall on and have fun

    Should I attempt to network the two to transfer all my old pictures and that kind of trash or should I just burn to CD? Since I have stuff seperated in folders how will that translate into iPhoto?

    I recently switched, and don't trust external hard drives until you're sure they work with Leopard 100%. I lost a lot of large install files (that I didn't want to keep on my tiny 100GB MBP drive -- does anybody else remember when 1MB was a lot?), because of Leopard's hiccups. So keep your data someplace secure until your Mac is done with the shakedown cruise.
