    Hey guys! Well, I've officially taken the plunge into the Mac world and absolutely love it! However, before I ditch my Windows machine I'd like to get a couple GB's worth of art/photos off of it. Whats the best way to do this? Can you connect the two together through a network cable, Firewire cable?, or am I better off just burning DVD discs with the information?

    Thanks for all of your help! This 15" PB should get me by until my PowerMac purchase ;)

    Welcome to Macs. :)

    For a couple of GBs, I'd burn a DVD but if you want to, you can use a ethernet cable (or wireless network) to transfer files by networking them. :)

    I just got my 15'' Powerbook yesterday as well, and transferred around 38 gigs last night. Given that both my PC and my Powerbook have a Gigabit connection, I transferred 38 gb in about 20 minutes! I love it. I originally was trying to transfer the data over my wireless network, and the estimated time was something like 35 hours or whatever...totally ridiculous. Needless to say, i was quite happy seeing that Gigabit connection flying along.
