    Well I am into my forth day with my new iMAC and my wife has had her's for three days. This is our first :apple: and are both VERY happy with them.

    We got the 24" 2.8 + 500GB drive + 4GB OWC. Both had the Leopard drop-in and two Tiger disks.

    The things are just simply beautiful. I am still getting used to the interface, but surprisingly enough, most tasks are pretty intuitive. I am not sold on the keyboard yet, still trying to get used to it. I have been used to larger ergo keyboards. I am liking the mouse, even though I was a trackball guy. Still getting used to things.

    I still get a kick out of seeing how easy it does things. Plugged in a printer, and was waiting for a confirmation of some sort. LoL and behold the printer is already available. Then I plugged in our video camera, and opened iMovie. Funny thing, it took lil time and all the videos on the drive are there and ready to use. Now to start having fun with Garage Band!

    Neither one has any apparent gradient issues and *knock on wood* neither have had any issues freezing up.

    My only complaint I have, is that I didn't switch sooner! :D
    Giddy like a lil kid!

    Now to start thinking about a mini for our 4 yr old, to replace his Dell.

    Great to hear, mate. Welcome to Macs! :)

    Four days is usually enough time for any initial hardware gremlins to have shown themselves so it sounds like you're one of the many customers who have got good machines.

    I get that giddy feeling every time I turn on my Mac (which isn't too often because I never turn it off) and I've been knocking around Mac's since System 7.5

    Its a feeling that most PC users (mainly windows) can't relate to.

    Just for the hell of it, I'll show you how happy I am right now...even though I should be studying for tomorrow's exam

    I hear ya! :)

    I have seldom, if ever, have that feeling with my PCs, but almost always with my Macs.

    Funny how that works.

    And even after using Macs for 24 years, I still enjoy a Newbie showing me theirs and what it can do.

    Sandman1969, welcome to the the MacWorld! :)
