    CANADA? eh?
    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 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 Not sure if it supports video.

    yep any dvdr
