    Am thinking of switching to a mac. Do bit torrent applications all work on a mac as per a Windows machine?

    When I download a .avi file will that sit well on a mac and be playable?

    Yes, you can use e.g. uTorrent or Transmissions. .avi files work fine

    However, I recommend looking into using Handbrake. It's a one click DVD ripping app that produces very high quality MP4's that'll play on an iPhone, iPod Touch, PS3, iPod, XBoxm etc, and is legal on your own films for the most part.:)
