Just went to the apple store in king of prussia saturday (hour and a half drive) and picked up my brand spakin new 1ghz iMac (base 17 inch model) with .mac and a pack of DVD-Rs...I am impressed! The thing that instantly stood out for me was the sharpness of the apple displays...WOW....OS X is fluid (just really getting the hang of things)...the only thing I notice this machine is "slow" on is rendering things in iMovie 3. Other than that things load quick and it is very snappy. I am going to purchase a 512 sodimm soon (they didn't have any in stock at the apple store)... I am impressed how nice the machine plays with the rest of my windows network... the only thing I have yet to figure out is..... How can I get it to print to my canon i550 attached to my XP machine?
