    I am going to be buying my iMac come 26th, however, I would like to know just 2 things:

    1. I plan on getting the wireless keyboard and mighty mouse. Will I get a little receiver which needs to be plugged into the iMac which gets the signals, or is it completely handled within the iMac itself?

    2. I am going to get rid of my old TV and watch it on my iMac. In your personal opinion what is the best software/hardware for this? I have heard good things about EyeTV.

    Thank you :)

    The iMac has Bluetooth built-in. All you have to do is pair the keyboard & mouse to the iMac and enjoy.

    I don't know much about EyeTV, so I'll pass on question #2.

    Enjoy your new iMac!

    1) The keyboard and mouse are bluetooth (which is built into your iMac) so you won't loose any USB ports.

    2) You won't go far wrong with Elgato EyeTV software of hardware. I have the EyeTV Hybrid and it works great in the UK for getting digital signals. On the Elgato website there is a section which recommends which system to get depending upon your geographical location and if you use cable or terrestrial etc...

    Good luck with the new iMac.
