Sounds like you need to review the pages at apple.com.StokeLee said:My New imac G5 is due to arrive sometime this week, has anyone got some recommendations to what software i should be getting, anti virus, pop up blocker etc etc, and any other software that you recommend.
Firefox is available for Mac, but i would give Safari a try first. Widgets are mostly subjective ... it all depends on what you want to do. Are you going to actually do something with you Mac (ie. create things ... web-pages, art, video, documents, photos) or are you just looking for time-wasting stuff?StokeLee said:... for example,, on my windows based laptop, i dont use internet explorer, i use firefox, etc etc, any killer widgets that i should download, what should i go and buy...
You should be set for DVD creation and authoring with iMovie, iDVD, and iTunes (and possibly iPhoto). For web-sites ... it depends on how much you want to get into it. For ease of use, .mac (dot mac) will give you web space plus web creation software. TextEdit can be used to write an HTML (if you know how to code) or BBEdit for better control. Then, there's always Dreamweaver and GoLive for WYSIWYG.StokeLee said:Its going to be for everything,,,, almost,,,,
im into making my own websites, nothing fancy,, the last two i made was using ms frontpage, but would like to get a bit more involved. I want to put some videos on dvd for my parents of my sisters kids for them, just basic dvd authoring,, menu, bit of back ground music,, for starters,, and then itunes, ive got an ipod foto, which ive got the envious task of transferring 20 gig from my laptop to my new imac,
what else,, im going to be connecting my imac up to my sounds system, got an av receiver, and the correct cables to join it all up, is there any software out there, that i would benefit from?
Many people including I love the one button mouse.Plymouthbreezer said:A three button mouse. The one button Apple one will probably drive you nuts.
Maybe, but chances are, if he's a long time windows user, he'll get angry with control-clicking all the time. I find it hard to believe that Mac users will the Pro Mouse are faster at "mousing" than those with two or three button mouse.sjpetry said:Many people including I love the one button mouse.
You get used to it. And I am now faster at "mousing" than with a two or three button mouse.
You mean, iMac.StokeLee said:Hi Everyone,
Thanks for your input, im looking forward to all things apple Imac, i know its going to be different, but hey,, whats life if not somat to look forward to.
Im going to have a look at the all the software suggested, the free to d/l or try at least first, then have a look at buying them, though it does look like im going to have to buy ms office, ive tried openoffice, and excel is just not good enough,,,
