    Bit of a learning curve but so far I love it.

    Got the 27 i5 with fusion on edu site.

    Anyone know any good videos for tips for first time mac owners coming from windows?

    You check for dead pixels, yellow screen, lightbleed etc yet? I hope they are fine and I get a good one.

    This is the second person that has posted a picture of their iMac set up at a counter or kitchen counter. Do you people really sit at a computer with the lack of leg space?

    The OP wanted videos for the basics for using a Mac, these are tips and videos straight from Apple's support website.

    I don't trust your picture. You need to take it at a 60 degree angle from either side! :D

    Actually, a 64 degree angle would be even more convincing. :p

    I would also like to hear from the OP if there are any problems with the iMac in terms of dead pixels, light leaks, etc.

    Looks like you're plugged directly into the wall. I'd recommend a power surge protector with battery backup incase you get a surge / lose power you won't lose your work or fry your new Mac!

    Looks very cool! Can you please tell me, what the eject button on the keyboard is used for with the new iMac, since there isn't a optical drive anymore? I want Gizmo to be able to sleep well tonight.

    I just bought a new house and plan to put in a whole home surge protector in the next few weeks. I have a battery backup but it would take up too much space on my desk.

    Not sure if this satisfies Gizmo, but it sure does me.

    Made in China, I think all the 27 were made there.

    Awesome pic!

    I hope there's no one dribbling a basketball near your desk!

    Congrats on the new toy.
