Hello all,

I am new to the Mac world as I just purchased a 24" iMac with the 2.4GHz CPU. I just ordered the 4GB memory upgrade from OWC so I am excited to receive that delivery. My main goals with this computer is for my wife and I to browse the web and answer emails as well as for me to work on the photos I will take of our soon to be born child in June. I will demo Aperture and Lightroom soon as well as probably get Photoshop.

I am having a lot of fun with this computer so far. I have a lot to learn yet it seems simple in many ways, very intuitive. I used to be a UNIX/Linux admin for 10+ years before getting into the sales side so I am very familiar with what is under the covers of the Mac OS.

I look forward to learning a lot as I go.

QUOTE Thanks

I forgot to say I might be the champion of Apple in my neighborhood as many have expressed interest in seeing it after I learn it a bit. Their computers are constantly littered with viruses as their kids seem to have a compulsion of clicking on every link they see .
