    What is the coolest thing about your mac?

    I just got a new iMac 27" i7 this past weekend. My first mac ever, and the few hours I've spent on it have been very enjoyable. The multi-tasking is amazing, the apps are cool and the screen just blows me away.

    I've read a lot of the guides and posts here at MacRumors and they are all very helpful. But I'm still curious what gets everyone so excited when they turn there mac on everyday?

    The 2 features that absolutely hold my loyalty for osx that windows does not have are:

    command zoom
    expose

    Minimalist shape and form. My desk is not cluttered with a overly large computer, but rather a sleek and efficient desktop. Plus it's fast, reliable, and looks good.

    Yep, I thought I'd click on the thread title to find: "When I boot up my iMac, all I see is a white screen and folder with a question mark in the center. What does that mean?" :D

    Trackpad. Even though I use my MacBook as a desktop primarily, I still absolutely love my trackpad. It's rather annoying when I have to use friends windows computers and the trackpad just doesn't work as well, especially the lack of two-finger scrolling.

    I also love my keyboards (I also have the wired one for the num pad). Some people complain about them not being perfectly ergonomic, but I find them very fast and plenty comfortable to type on. They are far superior to the squishy, standard-issue HP keyboards that my school uses for all the computer labs

    Without a doubt my most used feature on the mac is expose. I spend a lot of time in xcode and the like and always have masses of windows open so i find it invaluable.

    In terms of hardware, I love the screen. Big and beautiful.

    As for software, I agree with what other people have said - Expose is quite useful.

    The fact that it works.

    The fact that it is OS X and not Windows.
