I just ordered my first Mac since the old days of the OS X 9 (I think it was 9, might have been 8), anyway I would like to thank all of those who helped me when I was asking all those questions. I got the basic model with 1Gb RAM, it cost me just over AU$1500, good deal I got I think. I will be back to where my computer days started in a little less then 4 days, I can't wait to not have to worry about viruses any more! Regards. EM87. PS can someone tell me some useful shortcuts on Mac OS X like ctrl, alt delete on Windows etc.
