FINALLY! After years of pleading with my wife (rightfully so..they are expensive and mortgage comes first) I got my first mac yesterday and I am in computing heaven! I went to the local mac store in garden city new york and bought the 24 inch iMac ($1799 one). I also bought the wireless keyboard and mouse. They showed it to me after I bought it and I saw that it didn't have the numerical pad on the side (which I need and use often) Instead of exchanging it, they gave me a free keyboard in addition. I am very excited. I have been reading this forum forever. The only thing now is I'm trying to find a program that takes songs off my touch onto my mac. Thanks!
