Hi everyone, I am a first time switcher and I wanted to thank you all for your input (if you knew it or not) in my decision. I have been thinking about switching to mac for a while now (windows was simply getting unbearable). By lurking on this site I was able to gather all the info I needed to switch with confidence. My G4 PB 1.5 (5400, 128 VR, 512) arrived yesterday and I love it. So THANK YOU! As you would expect I am having my own set of growing pains. There are minor things that are difficult to adjust to for someone who has been using Windows exclusively for 10 years. So here's my first round of newbie questions. 1. I read on a tread a while back that someone ordered a PB with 128 VR and was shorted 64mbs. I'm a little paranoid and was wondering how he found this out. I looked under "about this mac" and found no mention of video ram. 2. I got a brand new Logitech MX900 to compliment my PB. So far it works great and I am very happy with it. I mapped the keys on top to expose. I was hoping to map the side keys to forward/back in safari and/or finder. Is this possible? 3. Can you guys suggest a good IRC client? 4. Can you suggest any other apps that would be useful for a newbie like me? Thanks again and I look forward to hearing back from you!
