    Buy Quicktime Pro and you can record your video using Quicktime. Or, use iMovie. :)

    Yes, open iMovie and click on the button that looks like a camera

    Just connect your camera to the mac using a USB cable, open iPhoto and import the pictures.

    Man, I really wish I would've gone for the 2-3 day shipping now. I can't believe it got to you so fast. I'm crossing my fingers for a Thursday delivery even though it says Friday. :(

    Question, how long did yours "stay" in China on the FedEx page?

    Well, mine didnt ship from China:confused: I thought it shipped from Ontario, Canada. Mine shipped within 24hours fom the time I ordered it, and I recieved it the next day!! They said It would get delivered by 3:00 pm, but instead it came early @ 10:00 AM. i was really impressed with they're shipping speed. I have no cle whats up with yours though:( Perhaps you hould call customer support. I think it depends on your location also.

    trust me its worth the wait!;)

    - Regards

    Mine shipped from China and it was hung on that page for a couple days IIRC. In reality, it's somewhere over the Pacific Ocean :) ... I can't remember what it did from there, but it's gonna be a few days, so go outside and get your mind off it :p

    To the OP:
    Just plug in the USB cable to your Mac and iPhoto will either open automatically or all you have to do is open iPhoto. It will bring up the importing dialog screen and away you go.

    His must of been in stock at a local distibution warehouse so it just shipped from there. Yours must not have been in stock anywhere locally so it had to be made in china and then air shipped. From the couple of things I've seen shipped from china it usually heads over to alaska and then from there it takes a short while to clear customs and then it heads to your house. It only took 2 days for my stuff to get to my house on the east coast once it shipped from china.

    The trackpad looks like a gateway, my old lappy had almost the extra same style (although not really much evidence since most windows machines look the same).
