    Hey all,

    I am finding it very very hard to stay with my current computer an IBM, I was surfing the canadian apple site and there are some things on the site like watch the awsome ads it says explorer has to shut down because I dont have the right program to run the movies that is BS. Anyway I have made up my mind this system is going down and I will be getting a mac:) I am going to buy the 24" iMac with 500 gigs of HD space. And put my current computer in our guest room for anyone out of town visiting. if I could i would kick it a mile.

    I will be so nice to use a realiable system again:)

    :apple: for ever!

    Windows Xp
    2gigs ram
    tower sys
    about a year old
    nvidia 6600 graphics card
    200 gig HD

    The iMac is lovely, but how old is this IBM? Is it a thinkpad or an IBM desktop? And what version of Windows does it run? I thought that Explorer shutting down business was pretty much a Windows 95/98 thing.

    Wait for a while.

    If it were me i'd be waiting for a while especially with the direction apple is heading in. Also have you tried using Mozilla Firefox instead of internet explorer? Firefox is much more stable and a much more powerful browser than IE. It also looks better...
    Just saying.
    So if it were me i would definitely wait especially with the Leopard release around the corner.

    I have a Mac, and there's a handful of videos/muti-media that doesn't work; and Safari/Fire Fox will "Unexpectedly Quit".

    I hope you have more reasons to "switch" than that.
