    i have 5 windows crap machines

    and 1 amazing eMac 1ghz 512mb ram 60gig machine that works amazing for its weak specs....


    now i can finially upgrade my mac and get a new mac...the store(like a privatly based) is offering a trade in value of 600 dollars for the emac(wow i was so shocked) and i am getting a baseline iMac(and we are getting rid of the one windows)

    i have some questions

    for email: i use outlook express..how would i transfer contacts,settings,emails etc?

    photos: i have 6,000 in my pictures and each album in a different folder? how would i import them?

    music/movies from itunes...(i have on a 80gig external drive backed up) so how would i transfer these over and put them into itunes?

    can the webcam be used with any msn program with a windows user? what programs work?

    do any dvdr burn on the imac> or just apple ones?

    I'm pretty sure in the Apple Store you can get a free data and settings transfer from old mac to new.

    webcam works just like any webcam so yes.

    any dvd-r would work

    I think Apple's Mail program imports outlook express through File->Import Mailboxes

    Photos: You could drop each album into iPhoto to keep the semi organized that way... or you can just drop the main picture folder and organize them into events later.

    iTunes: Just drop the main music folder onto iTunes. No problem.

    Webcam definitely works with iChat which is AOL's chat. You can download Microsoft Messenger from microsoft.com/mac. Not sure if it supports video.

    yep any dvdr
