    Well I got my new Mac Pro Today :D , as I switch back to Macintosh (Dam you university PC needs!:mad:)

    Ran though all that set-up stuff, updated the software then went to install some software, and ran into my first dilemma...

    "How do I open the CD Drive?" - didn't see this one coming...

    Well I figure it out... but wow... its been a while since I've used a mac...

    Now I am moving over all my photos & artwork.

    It's good to be back!

    I'm using it for my creative hobbies
    - photography
    - writing
    - drawing
    - 3D Work
    - Video Editing
    - and other stuff

    Its a bit of overkill, but what the hell, its only money.

    Cheers,

    uMac

    PS. I finally got the mouse working with both buttons too!

    another newbie

    I too am a new "switcher".... been brainwashed by Micro$soft since before Win3.1

    Got myself a base MacPro 2.66ghz
    and will be adding two 400gig HD
    and 2gig of memory, if I can ever decide which company sells reliable 3rd part RAM [these forums have opinions all over the board on that one]

    SDDave. There are great companies out there. Transintl, OWC, and DMS are ones recommended all the time here. Sure bad things happen, bad RAM happens. It could happen with Crucial as well or any other big seller. Heck it happens with Apple RAM I am sure.

    I know OWC is a reliable company. I have not bought from DMS, Transintl or Macupgrades. OWC does however offer a lifetime advance replacement warranty. Here is chat session to clear up any questions about the warranty.

    Speaking of OWC, 4GB just dropped $10 to $319.99!

    Also, Canada RAM recommends DMS. I haven't bought from them. But I don't think I would hesitate. Just be firm. If you get bad RAM they need to get you new stuff and they will pay the shipping. In the case of OWC they do that for 120 days, DMS might be liftime. Canada RAM would know best.

    I want to bite before prices go up, but I don't know if the new Mac Pro will use the same memory. So I wait.

    I bought RAM from DMS for my iBook. No complaints at all with them, awesome company to deal with and of course they guarantee mac compatability. I will definitely be going back to DMS for future RAM purchases. DMS also offers lifetime warranty on their RAM. I found that they were usually a little cheaper than everybody else. It basically comes down to what you want, they're all reliable dealers.

    uMac, congrats on the new mac BTW. Enjoy! :D
