I've really been having a blast since joining this community and am finding tons and tons of great information. At the same time I'm finding too much information can be burdonsome and even scary. To wit: I bought my first Mac (20" mactel iMac) late Jan/early Feb. Man have I been happy with it. Reading some of the reviews here has made me a little nervous from time to time, but I understand the context of many of these "observations." I try to use them to inform myself but rest assured that it doesn't necessarily mean that I'll experience some of the problems. Anyone back to my point. When I bought the iMac I moved the old PC into the living room for my wife and kids to destroy if they wanted to. Anyone like to guess where they spend most of their time computing? Yeah, in my home office on my iMac- that there says something about quality- they're not so obsessed with the ol' PC-- never were. So after a few weeks I thought-- I'm going to buy them a mini-mac core solo for some minor gaming (kids games: Dora, 123, etc) and basic websurfing, email. Nothing of what my wife and kids do will be labor intensive. Then I joined here and read some of the complaints. Just wondering if it's time to buy the mini-mac solo for them or if it's best to hold off a few months. Any opinion is appreciated.
