I'm seriously looking at getting my first Mac. Been a Windows user forever but after owning a couple of iPods, iPhones, and iPad I'm looking at the 27 iMac fully loaded. I've been doing some reading and have some questions that I hope some of you can help with. 1- One of the key factors for me looking at Macs is the awesome IPS high res screen since I watch movies and do amateur video editing and photo editing as well as watch tv on my pc. Ive just found out that Macs don't play Blueray movies. Only option I learned of was a software called macgo but seems to have problems. Is there any other option? 2- I have apps that only come in Windows so understand bootcamp and VMware can handle this but what's better of the 2? I'm imagining that rebooting in and out of windows via bootcamp is slow and a pain but also wonder if VMware is slow to run apps? 3 - I was planning on getting a SSD drive for the Mac and Windows OS and a second HDD for data and plug an external drive or time capsule for backup but I came across a post that said Mac backup software won't work when u have 2 internal drives like I plan to do. So does that mean I should ditch the SSD idea and just run 1 drive? Hope not cause I read SSD is so much faster for OS and apps. 4- Related to 3. If I use an external drive won't wifi (time capsule) or USB be too slow for backups? 5- Lastly I always thought Macs were known for just working well but after reading some post about problems with even new 2011 iMacs and Lion and subpar service from apple support I'm getting second thoughts. I also went to a nearby apple store and the sales person was not impressive at all and as a matter of fact wasn't very upfront or knowledgeable about a couple questions I had about transitioning from Windows. Just looking for some feedback in this one. Would hate to drop $3k+ and end up with same experience as a Windows PC. Thanks!
