Hello everyone! My name is Kyle and I am new to Mac. Earlier this morning I ordered a 24" iMac 3 GHz model with 4GB of RAM and the NVIDIA graphics card. I stuck with the 320 GB HDD as I plan on purchasing an external LaCie RAID drive in the near future to place on my network. I topped my order off with a subscription to AppleCare as well as a discounted subscription to MobileMe which isn't scheduled to ship until mid July. Sad to say I have been a Windows junkie my whole life and am finally convinced to make the switch! I am getting rather tired of Windows XP and Vista isn't even an upgrade option in my opinion. I have heard nothing but good things about Mac's and am very excited to finally see what everyone has been talking about! Even though this will be my first Mac computer this won't be my first Apple product. I currently own a 4th Gen iPod 20GB and a 4GB iPhone that I have been overly excited with since I purchased it a week after it's launch last year. I have also been using an AirPort Express to stream iTunes music for about 2 years now. These products seem to "just work" and I can't wait to add the iMac to my collection! My only worry is that I will get a unit that suffers from the LCD issues I have been reading about on this forum. My fingers are crossed for an iMac with no pixel or gradient issues. As far as my set up will go, I purchased and set up an IKEA Mikael desk just last weekend. While this seems like a pretty solid desk I am not 100% sold on the durability of the birch veneer. I'm pretty sure I will be returning it this week in favor of a Galant desk with aluminum legs and a frosted glass top. Does anyone have experience with the Galant system? I will be sure to post pictures/impressions as soon as my iMac arrives which is scheduled to be here at it's earliest by the end of next week. This will be an eternity!
