    Greetings to All,

    I just wanted to give a shout out for the arrival of my Imac 24 inch 2.8 ghz. I am so excited but rather than unpacking it first, I decided to thank all of you and this forum for all the useful information. There is much to be done and I am very :D to finally have made the move to :apple: from the darkside. I feel good!:cool:

    The box is heavier than you'd expect, isn't it? :)

    Welcome and it's not really the darkside. More like the enlightened side. :)

    You took the words right out of my mouth (no, not a meatloaf impression).
    I consider Windows to be the darkside. Hope you have alot of fun with your new purchase, I shall be joining you soon with a purchase of my iMac next month.
    Is it just me or do I keep reading phrases like 'Got my first Mac' & 'just switched from Windows' quite frequently? Is this the usual rate of switchers?

    Arrival of my Imac

    Guys,

    Let's be clear. I wrote: "... finally have made the move to :apple: from the darkside. I feel good!:D." Therefore, I moved from the "Windows" darkside to the enlightened ":apple":side. :)

    you guys all really sound gay with the whole, "welcome to this new computer world." its not a freaking fanboy club or cult.

    Well, Newbe? [​IMG]

    Just kidding. ;) Congrats. I think you'll love the Macintosh platform. :)

    Ladies and gents, how's about we help Newbe out by posting our three favorite applications he should download?

    Mine:

    Firefox 3 for surfing the Internet;
    Handbrake for ripping DVD's; and
    MPlayer for playing movie files. I recommend either ripping in the AVI or MPEG format. Handbrake also rips DVD's in a format and size perfect for the iPod.

    Oh no, I'd never want to thank them for anything....instead I'll blame them, they deserve blames over thanks. :D
