Hello everyone. I'm on the fence about purchasing a new Imac. I'm interested in a 24" model, potentially with the 2.4 Ghz processor. I'm a lifelong Windows user, and like many Windows users, I have some reservations from making the switch over to an Imac. Led by the fact that I'd need to purchase Microsoft Office for Mac ($150) and a screenwriting software ($100) that already runs smoothly on my current XP based Dell tower (it would be an additional computer to authorize the software on, because they limit the number of times you can add it to individual computers. bastards). However, after using the 24" Imac at an Apple store, I'm intrigued by the idea of getting one, led by my desires to begin shooting short films/editing them with my Imac. I have questions. A whole bunch. But your answers would be greatly, greatly, greatly appreciated. Here goes...... 1. I have an ancient HP Inkjet 932c printer. I believe it's 6 years old. Will I be able to use this printer with my Imac? 2. How well will Final Cut Pro run on my desired Imac if I upgrade it to 4 GB of RAM? Is it better to upgrade the memory vs. purchasing the 2.8 Ghz Imac? 3. Is purchasing 4 GB of RAM from Crucial the best way to get the most out of my new computer/using Final Cut? (Certainly much cheaper than doing it via Apple). 4. Perhaps I'm making myself paranoid by reading through all the forum sections regarding the Imac, but I'm reading a lot of posts regarding internet speed issues using a router. I have a Linksys WRT54GS router. I was planning on using it via an ethernet cable to the Imac. Can anyone confirm or deny that this would be an easy transition? 5. This is a BIGGIE for me: the glare found on these new screens. My Imac would be located in a room that contains several windows from different sides (shades pulled up during the day). I don't want to have to draw my shades during the day in order to avoid the glare. Do you reckon this will be a major issue in this room? 6. What is Apple's return policy? If I hold off upgrading the RAM manually, but decide the Imac is not for me (glare issues, internet connection, other reason), can I easily return it? Is there a set amount of time I have to do so? 7. Someone complained on this forum about this version of the Imac I'm describing as having a "super slow dvd unit". I'm looking to do a lot of video editing and DVD burning. Does the Imac have a relatively slow DVD player/burner/component? I know I have a lot of questions, but this is a huge investment for me financially, and I also want to make sure my next home computer purchase is something that can last me a long time (8 - 10 years). Your answers are GREATLY appreciated in advance. Thanks!
