Separate names with a comma.

I'll probably just stare at it and admire it for awhile.
After all of the staring and admiring, I would get iStat or Temperature Monitor and see how hot mine runs.
Except I'm not getting one...
Turn it on.
1. Put in my 32gigs of ram
2. Install windows
3. Watch solitaire fly...
Still trying to justify what I just paid!!
I'm going to inspect it thoroughly for any defect or blemish. Then when I'm satisfied I will set it up. As this is my first Mac I'll be bringing a lot of files over from my PC (probably via a separate hard drive).
Lastly learn how to use it so I can show the wife and daughter.
That is wonderful - hope the family enjoys the world of Mac.
Give it to my 2 year old to toss around a bit.
Load Aperture, 1Password, Mint, iWorks. Then Bootcamp, Windows 7, work programs.
Where are u planning to pickup your 32GB sticks from?
I got mine from crucial for 158. Will arrive middle of December
You aren't a true Apple Fanboy until you've owned your own Mac. Just wait a week or 2, and then you can make that claim.
I hope so too. We love all our iOS devices so this is the next step for us. I picked up a TC on Black Friday as well so I'm pretty committed to the cause!
My daughter has Aspergers and loves spending hours on the PC. She is very creative so I hope this helps her develope her skills.
My bank balance says different! Big spending year this one!
I will insert a new CD I got, open iTunes and start ripping... Oh wait! Can't do that... jk
Will add the extra RAM and worry about using migration assistant or trying to manually move all my stuff over.
I will reinstall the OS so I can omit the foreign languages and print drivers that I don't need.
Uhhh, did I miss something . . . Apple FanBoy needs to learn how to use a Mac??
*St-ank Bl-are into Bl-ind M-own
Edit: sorry, I'm not trying to troll you or make you look dumb with that comment. It is just really hard for me to understand how it is that some people don't know how to use a Mac. It's just because I've owned macs (and pcs) since my Macintosh 128k (and apple IIcx before that).
No offense intended. Stoked to hear you are making the big switch.
redtube of course. the upgraded display on the imac is going to make for a great user experience
Hay it's my first one! I've been PC user since I can remember. With 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 iPods, Apple TV and a Timecapsule I think I qualify for the title Apple fanboy! I have to admit though I will feel more legit on here as a proper Mac user. It's been a long wait but it's nearly over!
good on you mate. Also see my edit above.
Copy over my 2TB of media and install all my apps and see how well fusion actually works. If it does not work very well i will disable fusion and use the ssd for OSX and W7 and the 3TB drive for data.
Install windows and gamezzz!
First I will give it a name. Maybe Bob or Lisa. Then I will have a serious talk about boys with Lisa (or Jim, not sure yet really) and explain the meaning of life. I will make a point out of telling her (or Walter), how one has to find their own path and figure out what matters most (kinda like a Bill Cosby approach). After that I will dive into a lengthy monologue about my favorite movies and TV shows and possibly take a minute to express my political opinion on the current state of affairs in New Zealand or Central Africa (depending on the name of computer, obviously).
That's pretty much it, nothing special I guess.
Start transferring data, reinstalling software, etc.
What exactly is red tube?
Like YouTube, but for other types of videos.
It's okay I don't get easily offended! I have read lots on here and the Apple website so I think I'll be okay. If I get stuck with anything I'll know where to come and ask. As I understand it, it's about unlearning your windows habits. I'm not planning to go down the windows partition route unless I have to. 16 days to go!
install bootcamp and windows 7.
