Hello. I have been reading this forum for the past few weeks in my research for my new computer. Thank you all for the info posted, it has helped. I do have a few questions, or at least a question about if I know the right answers. Before I make the purchase likely thursday, I want to be clear on things. But first I will say that I decided to make the switch to Apple after buying my daughter a PC with vista. Vista is ok in my opinion, just boring. I wanted something new, I looked at the macbooks, macbooks pros, iMac 20" iMac 24" . I have read about the screens and the features. For the money, as money is always a factor for me, I decided on the iMac 20" 2.66 GHz as being the best bang for the buck. Future shop here in canada has a deal now that for $1599 you get free iWork, a free printer and a free airport express. Free is good. So my questions. Can I buy the iMac at one store and the applecare at another store? I did a search but didn't see a answer, but I seem to think you can after reading the apple web site. I have a 500 gig external HD NTFS I think that I will be able to get my stuff off of it as Apple can read NTFS, it just can't write to it. My question is, after I get the stuff off, can I re formate the hard drive to act as the time machine hard drive thing or do you have to use apple's hard drive? Will the iMac play DivX movies without buying software? Can I make a web page in iWeb and post the page in my own web space and not .Mac? If so, can I use all the features of iWeb on my own web space? What good is the airport express? Its a wireless router? For notebooks I can see using it but for a iMac is it usefull? Or do I even know what I am talking about? I will leave it at that for now as I have rambled far too much, thank you for your time.
