    Hello People

    I'm a newbie in the mac world, and i have tried a imac for several months for my company (Video editing). I would like to say "THANK YOU APPLE"

    It is a great machine to work on and no problems at all with it. My question is:


    1. Do you know when we can expect the new imac generation?

    2. Can i run Vista and mac osx with a dual boot?

    3. Can you also post what you like and dislike with the imac?



    Thank you and sorry for the bad english :)

    We hope there will be a refresh for the iMacs before the end of the year.

    You can run bootcamp to partition the hard drive to install vista on the new partition half. Or run both OSes at the same time using Parallels.

    I like Apple's great OS, and beautiful innovative design. :)

    Also please use a Google search before posting next time. You could have easily gotten the first two answers with a search.

    In answer to your question:

    1. Well the new iMac generation did launch very recently so the next generation of the iMac probably won't be around for at least 9 months or thereabouts, but check the Buyers Guide at the top near the forum tab, that should give you more information.

    2. Yes you can run Vista and OS X using Boot Camp which is built into Leopard, there are tutorials on the Apple Website: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/11889.html

    3. Well I've used iMacs and to be honest there brilliant, I have a Dell now and I'm going to get a Mac soon because of the lack of cables and it's form factor, with things I don't like all I'd say is if you've used Windows for many years it's a bit disorientating to switch but that's got over within a few days so there's not really a lot to dislike about the iMac.

    Hope that helps

    If you really need a mac then you should get one now. But if you want the latest and greatest, and don't minding waiting a few months then you should wait and see if a new one is released. :)
