My iMac G5 And The Big Switcheru.

After a week of sit­ting in the win­dow wait­ing for the TNT deliv­ery van and hum­ming ACDC, my arrived. Now I had to of of the and them on as I think that is a bit geeky, but I have to tell you the open­ing cer­e­mo­ny was great fun it all took about a minute and I was plugged in and ready to go. Set up was a breeze and I was able to mount my dead as a tar­get disk and res­cue my files. Relief!

I have to say to any­one who is think­ing about mov­ing from a to a or even just get­ting an Mac to com­pli­ment your com­ple­ment of com­put­er parts. Do it! you will not be dis­ap­point­ed. Get­ting used to takes very lit­tle time and you will very quick­ly find your­self won­der­ing why does not imple­ment the same uni­fied menu sys­tem. The is very cool to play with and you will prob­a­bly do the same thing as me, make it as small as pos­si­ble and turn off mag­ni­fi­ca­tion, until a PC using friend comes by and you want to show off.

The heav­i­ly flout­ed is more use­ful then I thought it would be but I only use post-its and to do lists. As it sits my iMac has 512mb of ram, which is what it came with and it is not enough to real­ly take advan­tage of dash­board as it’s hog. I will be order­ing anoth­er gig asap. For most uses it’s a won­der­ful­ly qui­et machine but as soon as it gets under a lit­tle bit of strain the fans kick off and it gets loud­er but still nowhere near a reg­u­lar PC.

I am in love with , I know it’s avail­able for but I had nev­er played with it. Music is fun again and rip­ping CDs is sooo easy. Being able to switch from to and is great and did I men­tion easy. It is when lis­ten­ing to music or watch­ing a DVD that you realise how good the sound is on an iMac.
