hello everyone! i just joined the forums today and would simply like to introduce myself. i searched around for the appropriate section to post this thread but didn't see an off-topic or introductions section so i figured i would post it here since i'd more than likely spend my majority of time here. my name is gabriel and i have been a windows user for over 15 years now. that all changed with my purchase of the new generation mac mini. first thing i swapped out was the 2gb ram with 8gb of crucial memory. noticed a huge improvement especially in cs3 and bridge. i am currently using a gateway fpd2185w monitor with apple bluetooth keyboard and trackpad. i am looking into getting an ips monitor and those dell ips monitors are looking very good especially for the price. my monitor was flickering yesterday while running intensive applications but seems to be working fine now. i noticed others on here have experienced flickering screens so i will keep a close eye on it. other apple products i own are iphone 3gs (wife and i), ipod classic 160gb, airport express and that's about it. so far it's been an easy transition from windows to mac and would appreciate any further advice from you fellow experienced members on here.
