    At last, I've finally ordered my very first Mac. Have gone for the new 20" iMac G5 with wireless m + kb, in the next several months will make it 1.5GB then finally 2GB - then the monster will be alive. :)

    Its so cool that the iMac comes with tiger, will have fun getting my hands dirty with that! I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions! see you soon :rolleyes:

    What took so long? How long did you think about it before buying the iMac?

    Nice one mate.

    One of the better decisions you could make.

    Life gets a lot simpler from here on out.

    Status Waiting

    I ordered a desktop Mac finally. I have had a Powerbook for over a year.

    I bit the bullet and ordered a 2.7DP with 2x512Mb and 400 GB HD and a 23" Display.
    I also order 2 GB Crucial (4x512) and picked up the Logitech Surround Sound from local computer store.

    The 23" display arrived. My memory is here and as mentioned my speakers are here. Now I am waiting on a slow truck from California to get to the east coast. Shipped on the 4th and won't be here until the 10th.

    My desk was cleaned off this evening and I am anxious to spend less time with my Dells.

    Was just wondering, do you get AppleWorks 6.2.9 included with the iMac? or is there a more basic version that you get...

    The title of the thread made me think it was about having a baby :D
    Yes I think it comes with 6.2.9 - you also get a 30 day trial of iWork
    congrats on the purchase BTW
