Well guys... I see a lot of threads about problems and disappointments around, and I just have to say that I'm in love with my new 24" iMac! I just installed 4GB of RAM and it flies! Incredible how big the performance difference is! ...and..... today I went to University as usual, turned on my Macbook and to my surprise, there was the "Shared" section on the finder window!! Back to my Mac works beautifully! I could stream songs and lunch a couple of programs on my Home mac! I have to say that it was a bit slow though! Anyhow.....I am very happy! E.
