Aside from my ipod and iphone, I have been using MS systems forever. Finally, I'm deciding to cross over to the mac world, but I have lots of questions. I know these questions sound like I should stick with Windows, but bear with me, I just want to prepare for the transitions. Thanks. 1. Do macs run Flash player software? I know that Flash is not available for ipods and iphones, but I thought it was for their other systems. Also, can someone help me understand why Flash on Apple is such a contentious issue? 2. I have the Windows XP backup disk from my Dell laptop, but it states that it can only be re-installed on my Dell laptop. I was thinking of running the Parallels software, but wasn't sure if I could use the backup Windows XP disk. Anyone know? 3. If I install MS Office on the new mac, will those files be recognized when I use a Windows based PC (i.e. via flash drive)? 4. For those of you who have iMacs, do you wish you would have gotten to MacBook Pro? I'm somewhat reticent to give up the portability, but I love the display, and I plan on doing a lot of photo editing, so... Please feel free to tackle all or some of these questions, Again, thanks in advance for the help.
