just got an imac from the Apple Store in London with an educational discount. 1.83 ghz with 1 gig of ram and a 22 inch monitor from ViewSonic. really impressed with Macos - I have two fairly new Windows XP laptops and I have to say that the imac is much better and faster (I think) than both of them. I am thinking of getting either an iMac or a Mac Pro as well. The imac was just a first attempt into the mac world. I am not sure about the import from word into pages though. It is not as good as I thought it would be so I am sticking with neo office which I find very usable. Very glad I switched. I am trying to convince some of my colleagues at work to give macos a try .
