    Does the iMacs come with spotlight. I saw the mentioning of it and wanted to see if I have it... looks like I don't. I just bought my iMac last month. Thanks.

    Yes, all Macs have Spotlight as part of Finder. It's in the top right corner- it looks like a magnifying glass.

    Oh okay, so it's not a separate app or anything. It's integrated in with finder? I was looking for it. LOL Now I feel like a dummy.:rolleyes::D

    Yes, it is integrated into the system. You can also access it via CMD+SPACEBAR or set it to something else via System Preferences > Spotlight.

    Also have a look at the following links, as the information presented there might be helpful in your future endeavours into Mac OS X and could clear up initial confusion and may even prevent harm to your system or your files.
