I won't turn this puppy on until I get a pro response on what I should immediately do with this thing i.e. system check... performance something... open this document and hit ______ to make sure ______ is ______ing.

Specs are; 3 TB Fusion drive, 32 GB ram, 2.9 Ghz 27" imac.

If it helps, I will be using this computer for my home studio in conjunction with Logic Pro 9, and two extensive orchestral libraries; Albion III Iceni, and Cinematic Strings 2.

Thanks in advance!!!

P.S. Do the dudes over at gearslutz.com run this site? It looks amazingly similar...

Just turn it on. It will have you set up an Apple account if you don't have one. After that, just do whatever you bought your Mac for.

I would just turn it on, go through the configuration and fully enjoy your new iMac :)

I'm not a pro but when I bought my first iMac I did just that. If (and that's a big if) there is something wrong, you can always test for it when the need arises.

Just turn it on and start using it. You don't have to go out of your way to find if there's anything wrong with it, as that's what the warranty is for.
