With the great assistance of MacRumors Forum members, another long time Windows user has finally entered the world of Mac. I have been using my new 24in iMac now for several weeks. Two points for others who are contemplating the shift: 1. Read this forum often and ask whatever questions come to mind. MacRumors is the best all-around forum that I found in the six months I spent preparing for the jump. 2. There is a understandable bias in this forum that can seem to portray the Mac experience in an unfavorable light. The often acknowledged fact is that we tend to only post questions and comments when there are problems with our Macs. Man bites dog is a news story; dog bites man happens all the time. I want to report that my initial Mac experience was ABSOLUTELY flawless. Ordering, shipment, setup, first user experience: I could not have dreamed of a better outcome. Thanks for everyones help along the way.
