Hi Folks! New iMac owner here! Just powered up my first iMac 27inch today, been a long time windows/linux user and my windows machine started having blue screens and hardware issues, so rather than go through the prospect of replacing part by part to find the issue (custom build). Decided to take the plunge and get something reliable for home-office use! So figured since I'll be hitting these forums quite a bit, might as well register and say hello! Few questions right off the bat, I apologize if they've been posted before, still looking through the forums. 1: The iMac seems to run a bit hot, how hot is to hot ? just so I know when not to be and when to be concerned. 2: I'm almost ashamed to say it but... I like eye-candy, really big sci-fi buff here, and was wondering if there is a theme system with macs ? I know its linux based and I can "tweak" it to boot up into KDE, but I'd like to stick with the mac os, but would also like to add a bunch of eye-candy to give it that "pop" 3: In regards to work, I spend much of my time nose-deep in spreadsheets (excel) and was wondering if iWork is comparable to excel, or if I should go ahead and invest in mac office 2011 (heard possibly there is some issues with Lion and office though) 4: I have a pretty nice 7.1 sound system I used to use on my windows machine, but since the iMac only has an input and a output jack, I'm looking at my options, either an external sound card (still hunting for one) that I can use, or possibly a system that plugs into the thunderbolt port, etc. Any recommendations ? 5: What should I do with my old windows machine ? was thinking target practice, but that felt a bit crude. Hope to get to know you all!
