I was an early adopter of iPods and got hosed on the battery problems and lack of support for iTunes. Several friends for many yrs have suggested that I buy a Mac to do my video, photo and sound editing. After frying a couple of PC's and struggling with Windows based software (Pinnacle, Adobe and WMP) I am diving into the deep end of pool. Have been fighting the video issues in windows converting to a mobil player. I have gone as far to join an Anti Apple secret society (Anything but iPod.com) I SURRENDER!! Just bought my first Mac (iMac 24" 2.8 with 2GB of RAM) So far this has been a great experience in the set up. I love the UI and the whole user experience. I have had a little frustration in relearning the system. I am confident that will come with more familiarity. Just opened my .Mac acct and will be plugging in the Apple TV today. I do have a couple questions..... Need to upgrade the memory to 4GB. It has 2GB and I am assuming that there are 2x 1 GB boards inside machine? Regarding the iPod- still need to buy one and have looked at the iTouch and thoughts?
