Hey all I have been watching this board for the past two years. I have vacillated between a mac and a pc laptop. well today i bought a stock 17" iMac. set it up and lovin' every mac minute of it!! I have to say that the out of box experience is pretty cool. I wish that I would have switched sooner. As an educator, i got a really sweet deal on the computer, a 10gig ipod, applecare and a couple of games. a couple of questions: I am trying to load all my music from my pc laptop onto my ipod to bring over to my imac. i was able to bring over my downloaded songs, but songs i had ripped on widos media would not go over. I got a message saying that i needed to download something in order to do this. by the way, the music match software is NOT intuitive at all!! my other question is: I have this great computer...now what. I mainly spend my time with internet, email, word processing... basic stuff. would are some cool things to do with this baby. i am looking forward to making movies and playing with iphoto. any other suggestions? and finally: i bought diablo 2 and it seems to really operate slugglishly on this machine. i set the video on Rave but should it be set to some other setting? I am not familiar with mac hardware at all. also when the game loaded, i breifly got a QS9.2 screen. What's up with that?? I am going to bed now so i'll check back tomorrow after noon thanks all.
