Well I switched. I ordered my first mac a minute ago. 24" Imac 2.4 (didnt think the extreme was worth it) 500 GB HD 1 Gb Ram ( will upgrade via newegg) (can i keep 1gb stick and put in a 2gb stick for 3 gb total or do i have to go to 4?) wireless mouse wired keyboard (like a numeric keypad) applecare EDU discount free ipod $100 off canon multi function printer ($29 after rebate) I am so stoked! I have been waiting since Dec to make the switch and I want to thank all you guys who helped me along the way. Im sure I will be happy with it. My 5 year old Dell I am typing on has been good to me but its time for a change! Thanks!
