Hi! I am one of those that were set to "wait a little bit longer" mode this spring. And this is not bad actually, because I have more time to ask questions and hopefully get some answers that will be highly appreciated. I searched but could not find anything exact enough. 1. If I just want to play some MP3s and don't close the lid, does the LCD switch off after X minutes like on PCs? (To save power). I have read also that I can close it but then it goes to sleep. In this case, it seems, I can simply use an external USB mouse to wake it up with lid closed. Is this really enough? (I mean, with no external monitor attached). 2. Is there any chance of using consumer external USB drives made for PCs? After reformatting them of course. 3. Without dedicated graphic card, does it work well for (not very demanding) games? And same question, but if I install Parallels or Windows? 4. I understand that I can adjust the screen brightness from preferences panel. Don't they have any keyboard F-button like many PCs do? 5. Dells that are sold in Europe go with WiFi card that is made, as Dell claims, for Europe. I thought that WiFi is not like PAL/NTSC thing. Apple doesn't say anything on that. Anyone having problems to use WiFi overseas? 6. For laptops that are say, three or more years old, is it tough to find new batteries? I mean that I heard about ripoffs of iPod owners - anything like that with Macs? 7. Why everyone here is so concerned about exact CPU/whatever temperature? Never did that on PCs. Anything special about Macs that you have to MEASURE it like with a child? Two questions that are actually software related: 8. Can I share images stored in iPhoto between accounts so that one will be able to load them, and for others, everything will be viewable but read-only? 9. I could not find easily if there exists some good monitoring software to keep an eye on kids. Like a keylogger+screenshots+E-mail/Web logging? (Yes, I am paranoid). Thank you for your help!
