Well, by the 24th of December (at the latest) i will be anuser <3 it took so long to actually order the thing. First we went to put the money on and i LOST my debit card under the windows computer *dunno how that happened LOL* and the second time we had to wait a day for the money to go through. Now, as my brother continues using his own computer i will get the iMac! *evil laughter of some sort* Now, my questions. i just bought a refurb 2.0gHz core2duo 17inch imac. 128mb graphics, 1GB ram. etcetc... Now, what should i do when i first boot up? Is there any shortcut of just going straight to installing leopard without having to go through tiger installation? What are some applications that i'll need? Any new things (like keystrokes etc) i'll have to learn? And lastly, anything else you think i'll need to enjoy the full iMac experience? Thanks a lot guys. These forums and its' people have helped me a lot. And now, i hope to join you people on the dark side.. because it seems you have something better than cookies.
