One week later… the iMac still rocks. I am still learning some basics and do miss a few Windows features. I miss the way I could just bump my windows to the top or sides of Windows 7 and it would “dock” the windows. I also miss the capture feature.
So far my favorite features with the iMac have been the easy of finding programs, the incredible speed the machine has and the sleep feature… I know Windows has hibernate, but its NOTHING like the sleep feature on an iMac. I can tell the computer what time to go to sleep and what time to wake up.. and best of all, when I move the mouse… it wakes up… no waiting on things to load… BAMM.. its there.
The only things I still need to figure out are how to play .mpeg and .mp4 files… as well as how to get around the Internet Explorer requirement for some sites.
So far I have downloaded TweetDeck, Chrome, Quicken, App Cleaner and Office 2008 for Mac (2010 is not out for Mac yet). I also finally got my iPod switched over from the Windows based files to the Mac based files… took over a day, but finally finished.
So… One week later… I would recommend an iMac… the speed is crazy! It might be the 8GB of RAM or the i7 Quad Core processor… but this baby flies!
