    I'm going tonight to pick up my first mac from the nearby Apple Store tonight!! :) My family has always been PC oriented, so I'm the first. I'm getting a 20" iMac with the wireless keyboard and mouse and soon to buy more ram somewhere else. I just wanted to thank everyone on the board for all of their help with us newbies!

    See you on the other side!

    Good luck! Welcome to the MacIntosh side of computing.

    Don't get cold feet five minutes before the purchase.

    I am also making the switch. I am still debating between the iMac 20" and the mini with a 20" lcd purchase. Just curious to see if you went through this and what led you to your final decision.

    Congrats on your decision to switch! You made the right choice. I also just recently switched and am loving it. Mac OS X 10.4 ROCKS!!! Enjoy your new iMac G5.

    I decided to get the imac over the mini and a screen mostly because I'm a college student and those dorm desks don't have a whole lot of room. I can also take it back and forth from school fairly easily if I need to.
    I really liked the all in one look - plus I just got a research grant from my school with some award money so I could afford to get the 20" imac. It's on my desk at home right now and I love it so far. It's not hooked up to the internet yet, so I still have to rely on a PC for that, but soon enough.

    Good luck with your decision!

    I dont own a mac yet but a another perspective I think you should think that if later on the future that iMac goes sour or you need a new machine, just know that the beautiful screen it comes with goes as well... Unlike the 20'' cinema display you can actually reuse it the next time you need a new computer.
