Hi guys, first post. I've been a windows user for my whole life. I wouldn't call myself "very" advanced, but i've built my fair share of boxes. Gaming, HTPC, you name it. I've sort of given up hope that it will ever run the way i want it to. Smoothly. There are always contradicting updates and sleep/standby problems, wake up problems...half the time is spent just making it work and, in the immortal words of Danny Glover, I'm getting to old for this $h!t That leads me to a Mac. One of my major uses is photo managment and photo editing. I still use CS2, so i'm not on the bleeding edge and its a hobby not a profession, but it is one i enjoy and when i get a new computer i'm sure i'll update the software as well. I'm leaning toward an iMac over a Macbook Pro becasue i think i would like the larger screen, and the increased power (once the update comes along). I'm trying, though, to figure where to put it in my house. I've never had such a large monitor before (they were always either my tv itself, or a laptop) and i live in a small home. One thing i was thinking about was using it in the bedroom. Does anyone do that? How loud does it run? How about when it is sleeping? Is it really silent?
