Its been a painful wait but my first Imac 27 inch i7 with 8gb of ram is now sitting on my desk, as soon as i pressed the major button the apple logo enlightened my room much better than that crappy windows flag . I enjoyed the desktop for less than 5 mins when i choose to update itunes and continue to reorganize my newly shelf space, I also dove underneath to fix my wiring when i pulled the power cord off the wall outlet. however my PC woops Mac was still updating and i knew once i placed the cord of life into my mac i knew she will show signs of foolish mistake. for the Mac didn't boot to the osx screen. Just imagine my horror i have been waiting for this mac since the 12th of june and all i can think about is the lemon i got rid of. I called apple customer care and the guy was really good, after doing a system restore i think thats what you call it, i am already surfing the net posting my thoughts. Ok so heres my first thoughts no hardware problems so far screen fine no probs with speakers or super drive. Compared to Vista well it ***** over it booting times accessing applications much faster no games to test it out as yet but starcraft 2 is on my list. Still having trouble getting used to the basics like how you shutdown how maximise or resize a window moreover using the mouse is kinda strange without the scroll wheel its a big jump for me i know why apple is always 10 steps ahead of microsoft. So what do i miss? 1. The full keyboard 2. The lights on dell xps 710 3. The variety of software any dvd, clone dvd mobile, nero, street fighter iv etc 4. the pop out dvd drive not a big fan to apples dvd slot system 5. the lack of blu ray support however iam thinking of buying a belkin adapter to hook up my PS3 6. My surround speakers however the imac speakers are fine for me what i don't miss 1. the endless wires 2. the tower which was enormous, noisy and a dust and power drinker 3. the countless errors special thanks to microsoft vista 4. windows start menu apple osx dock kicks ass need themes now all up its been a huge leap as a all time windows user however like everyone i can say apple now and 4 eva but i dont know what i shall i do with the apple stickers! Maybe place em on the windscreen of car!
