Hi, I've been fed up with PCs for ages now until the final straw which came last week when the power management software just randomly 'dissappeared' from my IBM laptop (I have no idea how, I didn't do anything) and it took me about 2 hours to uninstall, then install, then uninstall, then install the various things that were needed to fix the problem. I have been tempted by a Mac for a long time but I never had the nerve to take the plunge and abandon the PC (sounds silly I know but it was a big thing for me). Anyway I finally went out and bought my first Mac, it is an eMac 1GHz Combo. Things I like: 1) The sleep mode - now it takes literally 10s to "quickly check my email" instead of the 5mins I needed to startup my PC! (Is it safe/ok to put the Mac in sleep mode overnight, everynight?) 2) The keyboard. 3) No more Windows security/privacy issues. 4) The general look and feel of everything. Things I don't like: 1) The mouse "what's that...it looks like a bar of soap" said my sister! I plugged in my PC mouse so I can now wheel up and down websites happily. 2) This is the slowest computer I've used in years. It can't keep up with my typing, extra Safari windows take ages to open (I'm used to having 4 or 5 IE windows open at one time on the PC). My PC was only a Celeron 1.2GHz but my eMac feels about 1/3 of the speed. I'm hoping it's all down to the fact that I only have the standard 128MB RAM in. Am I right in thinking that 128 is the bare minimum for Panther and the extra 256 I have coming tomorrow will make a big difference? I hope so cos I like my eMac a lot and I don't want to have to take him back for being too slow to do wordprocessing.
