    I am thinking of buyin the new 24" iMac having never had a Mac before. I am concerned about the OS being so foreign to me. Are there any books I can buy that will give me some info in learning to use the system and use it well? If so which ones are best?

    Also.... check this out....its hilarious to all former PC users.

    Check out David Pogue's "The Missing Manual: Tiger Edition" - it's basically a switcher's bible.

    And there's always this forum for any questions you need to ask - no matter how silly you think the question is, we're always happy to help a switcher who is willing to learn.

    Yeah man, this is Mac we are talking about. Once you get on, you will know what and how to do everything. Trust me on this one, I had to use Macs a year ago in Multimedia, and I just picked it up and was away, first time I EVER used a Mac too. Since then, I have been a little intriged by Macs. Trying to install it on my own machine didn't go over at all...

    So I had an oppurtunity to get a Laptop and after looking through tons of Black and grey laptops, I thot, APPLE. And, that is what I got, and I am very proud of my decsition, the most expensive thing I have ever gotten (Right after i got my other most expensive thing, the iPod video) Both of these are purchases that I did tons of research for, and am so GLAD i did it. They get the job done.

    As far as getting used to the OS, it's like using an iPod, you see it, you push a button, and you say wow, and you do it again, and something else cool happens, and it keeps getting better and better, and in no time, you will be a "Mac Master"! But don't let this get you wrong, I use Windows every day. In fact, I'm using my windows machine right now, heck, I built it, might as well use what I built it for...

    GOOD LUCK ON THE SWITCH!!! (And don't give up on windows)
