    Thumbs up iMac'd...the way life was meant to be!
    Well I did it, despite some really silly apprehensions, I went out today and got my iMac. Well, sort of, the 24 inch 2.4 was not available. But I learned that the 2.8 was in, and the sales guy felt bad for my luck and gave me 4 free classes at the Apple Learning Centre. Which are $75 to $125 a piece.

    Anyhow, I must say this was the easiest computer I have ever setup and used. I have built PC's from the ground up for 10 years, and this is the easiest, fastest, and by far the most intuitive desktop I have ever owned. The fact that all 3 of my other PC's were found on the network was a delight, especially since the first thing I wanted to do was transfer my music/files over from the PC to the iMac and my external hard drive died that I had copied the PC files over to.

    Anyhow, this is a one very satisfied far..but I do not anticipate any issues from the experience I have had so far.

    The keyboard is what will take me the most time to get use to. I am use to the ergonomics, so time will tell.

    Thank you to all who answered my questions during the debate on the purchase, and I will truly say...."I am converted!"

    Hello everyone! Just like Paladine, I used to make my own PC's from the ground up and after having 3 children in 2 years (well, my wife actually "had" them) I have decided that I no longer have the time or desire for fiddlin' and diddlin' with PC parts and so-called "upgrades". I'm 42 years old and am still a, I am NOT ashamed to say that!

    I no longer play PC games and purchased a PS3 and a 360 for any gaming I will do in the future. I am a happy convert to mac and appreciate all who tried so hard to convince me to switch. I just wish I had listened earlier!

    Although I purchased the "cheapest" imac (2.0Ghz 20inch) I have NO complaints. I MAY upgrade the RAM to 2GB.

    Welcome maxxe! And Paladine, enjoy your new iMac - I know that you will!

    BTW, a bit of advice. You ain't seen nuttin' yet. Go out and get yourself the book "OS X The Missing Manual, Leopard Edition". Once you start going through that book, you will be amazed at how much MORE power there is in your shiny new OS X install than may be immediately evident!
