    Talking Switching anticipation!
    Christmas is coming early. I thought I was being nice buying my wife an 8 gig Nano for Christmas. Come to find out, she had to tell me about a delivery that may come tomorrow since she will not be around to get it. A 24" iMac with upgraded CPU, video card, 2 gig memory, with Applecare is enroute as I type!!! Goodbye PC (although I will keep it around) and hello my first Mac. 48 years old and this old dog is ready to learn new tricks!!!

    With great glee,
    Mikeylee

    P.S. And to think I have been telling her all of the reasons I was waiting to buy one (MacWorld announcements, wait for OS 10.5 to come out, etc.)...but the sweet lady saw through all that. :-) I am almost giddy! Thanks for listening to me babble! ml

    Looks like you've got yourself a keeper!! (the wife, I mean) LOL Congrats! You'll find, like me, that the Mac experience is just that - and experience.

    Enjoy!
    1) Powerbook G4 12" 1.5 GHz, iWork, Ilife 06, Logic Pro, Office 2K4
    2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.

    This forum has already been a wealth of information in coming to this point. Believe me, I will pester the forum with questions. I need to remember the mantra, "This is not windows...forget XP"

    Netty,

    Young lady being complimented by a guy old enough to be your pappy = blushing? You must blush easily.

    Since you were recently a newbie to Macs, any words of advice that would have helped you? Remember, I know the mantra...just have to remember it during times I WANT OS X to be XP!

    Oh yea, made my first venture into myspace to see you page and opps! no entry. (fear not, I am not a leach...just getting goofy and giddy.) ml

    My friends think I am nuts for wanting to go (and now goiing) to a Mac, so they think it is the dark side!! I am thinking they would be blinded by the brightness on the Mac dark side.

    You just watch them turn green with envy. And when one of them phones you full of anxiety because his PC is crawling with worms and virii, you can just sympathize with him/her. :girl:
