Ok I told you guys about my sons computer blowing up in another post. Today we got him his own 20 inch 2.4 ghz Imac. I'm so jealous!!! Its gorgeous and took me about 10 minutes to set up. The hardest part was untangling my wires from my old components. Only problem is his printer isn't compatable. This thing is awesome. I"m waiting for my HP laptop to die so I can get my white macbook!!!

@ Billydilly! His printer is a Lexmark x8350 and wasn't listed in the supported section for drivers on Lexmarks site. Oh well he can always print from mine I guess
