So I have bid goodbye to windows and made the jump, I'm not sure exactly what pulled the trigger, it could have been one too many blue screens, it could be that my hp laptop developed a motherboard fault which seems to be from poor manufacturing or maybe I was subliminally influenced by all those "Mac vs Pc" ads... The reasons don't really matter the worrying thing is that it is coming and six days and I'm still not entirely sure what I'm in for... Here's the configuration of my newly purchased iMac: 3.06GHZ INTEL CORE 2 DUO 2GB 800MHZ DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800 GS W/512MB 1TB SERIAL ATA DRIVE IWORK '08 PREINSTALLED. APPLE MIGHTY MOUSE WIRED KYBD & USER'S GUIDE-B COUNTRY KIT,IMAC 24-GBR Ok so here's my questions: You may have noticed that I went for every conceivable upgrade bar memory, this is purely because I have heard that apple memory is overpriced. Is installing extra RAM difficult? Where can I find cheap RAM for my iMac on the net? Before ditching my laptop I backed all my entire iTunes library and all my other files to an external HD, is it just a sample of plugging it in to my iMac or is there file system incompatibilities? My fiancé is extremely interested in Garageband - she's a great singer and a gifted guitar player. Although I'm not ready to shell out on an audio I/O right away, I'm still pretty broke from buying the iMac, I was wondering if it is possible to use the Moster iStudio link cable to connect an electro-acoustic guitar, then after laying down that connect a microphone with an xlr to 1/4" jack and have her listen in her headphones as she sings in to the mic? On my PC I used a piece of software called Lencom Visual Web Task to create spiders for collecting address after doing an automatic search on a property website, is there an equivalent way to do this on the Mac? I have read a lot on this one and can never get a definitive answer - it all just seems to be preference: Parallels or VMware Fusion? Finally where can I find a list of things which commonly confound new converts to Mac? I have found quite a few already by searching the forums but maybe a few tips from your own experience could help me avoid some pitfalls when it arrives... Many thanks in advance of your answers.
