    After a year and a half, i'm ordering my iMac!! I'm so ***** excited.. haha. I'm purchasing the 24" iMac with wireless keyboard and mighty mouse. I can't wait to finally be apart of the Apple family. (Aside from the iPhone/iPhone 3g side) I'm sure this is the place to come for any questions i have.. so to anyone that might help me in the future, thanks in advance! So.. anything out of the ordinary you suggest i do when i first turn this beast on and get started?

    One day shipping... Nice. I ordered mine on Saturday 7 March and it hasn't even been dispatched yet, apparently because of the wireless keyboard. :(

    Yeah. I was going to do the wireless mouse/keyboard and do the $200 upgrade on the graphics card until i saw it was a 4-6 week wait with the card and 1-3 day wait for the keyboard. So i said screw it. I can buy wireless later if i want and the graphics card wasn't really needed to begin with. I don't play games or anything. I do plan on upgrading the RAM eventually though to 6GB or 8GB.

    Just, turn it on, then dont do anything
    turn it straight off
    and then turn it on again.
    The speed, with nothing on the hard drive but the OS is actually phenomenal :D
    Oh and take loads of photobooth pictures, they are soo addictive!
    Welcome to Mac :)

    Get naked before you turn it on the first time: it's like a rebirth. You'll enjoy it more that way.

    I'm getting my new mac tomorrow. Can't wait. I've had my current one for 3 years. It's the first intel mac that came out. Handing it down to the kids(who are always on it anyway)
    Really looking forward to the unboxing tomorrow.
    As for faces it's pretty usless IMO. I prefer to use smart folders for the kids and rest of the family.

    Enjoy your imac. !!
