Hi there i have been reading this forum for the last couple of months as i am interested in buying a 24" 2.8 imac. I do however have a few q's which if could be answered would be very helpful to me. So here they are: 1. Do i need to have a wired mouse and keyboard the first time i boot the imac or can i use a wireless keyboard and mouse right from the very beginning? 2. Are there a lot of issues with the wireless mice and keyboards such as short battery life and problems using them in bootcamp XP? 3. Is it worth paying extra for the program that allows you to run XP at the same time as leopard in a window or is it better to just use bootcamp every time i need to use a windows based program? 4. If i buy the mac version of microsoft office will i be able to transfer files that were modified in xp to the mac version of word, excel etc? e.g if i started a word document at uni on xp word would i be able to transfer it and use it in mac office? 5. Also is it worth paying another £90 for another 2gb of ram? Any other contributions that you feel would be neccessary for me to know would be very gratefully received. Thanks, Tom.
