    The small slot under the cd/dcd slot, is that for picture cards? Just noticed it. Is there someplace I can go to read up on general things about this computer, seeing as it came with little info?

    That is your chip upgrade slot. Once Apple announces the upgrade, you'll buy the chip and plug it in so that your system can receive the wireless signals that are transmitted once the upgrade is announced.

    :D:D wrong wrong:rolleyes: its the slot to insert a sim card if you want to use the imac as mobile phone in your car,
    as it cant be a sd card slot, as so many put the sd cards in the cd drive nowadays

    sorry mate , you asked for it , google might help and of course apple website ,
    if you want to know all what's inside your mac , just click this black apple in the top left corner and then click "about this mac" , when you see a window popping up which tells you what osx version you got , the processor and ram , just click on "more info" and you get every info about your mac

    Gotta agree....that's pretty whacked that you'd buy the system, then have to come here to ask what the card slot was for.

    right , i inform myself before i buy something , no matter if its a computer or a hairdryer or a car , but thats just me , i want to make sure before i buy what the product can do and what it cant do , just because i don't want to be disappointed , so i know long before i buy it what slots there are and what they are made for and how many connectors of what type it has , just general , as its no point buying a AIO pc for example and complain afterwards why it has no firewire connection , or buy a car that has only a 5 speed gearbox and complain after buying why it's lacking a 6th gear
    and google is a good source to find every info i might need ,including what problems i might have to expect if i buy a product ,
    and if i would buy something just because i like the design , it comes with a little booklet including a manual and most times even a little trouble shooting section

    Forget the manual, I'd recommend you read this.
