    Just recieved my 27 iMac, really pleased with it. Now I have some urgent questions.
    How to make Safari and other text look a bit bigger on 1440p resolution?
    How to transfer all my PC iTunes Library without losing the track info etc.

    Thanks, further questions may occur :)

    Check out CopyTrans TuneSwift. Free when I last checked, and I was able to retain all my playlist and song information. :D

    THIS works a treat for giving Safari larger text that's a permanent feature.

    To enlarge Command + and to make smaller Command -.

    How to transfer iTunes from a PC to Mac no third parts apps are needed. Here is an article that explains how, it's from 2007 but it should work just fine.

    Also as a new switcher why didn't you just use Setup Assistant, it would have move your iTunes (and other stuff too) over from the PC.

    Finally if you haven't already bookmarked these sites I'd strongly recommend you do and refer to them frequently.

    Whilst the above does of course work, with every new tab text is back to 100%. Using the workaround in the link provided the increase is permanent and can be pre-set to a desired size e.g. I like 130%.

    You are right, I wasn't aware of that fix. I just started using it myself...very handy.

    When my screen is turned off (shift+ctrl+eject) or on screen saver and when I'm using controls of iTunes on Keyboard then it wakes up screen, is it somehow possible to keep screen as it was, without waking it.
