new here, though not new to DSLReports.com (been posting in Canadian forums and VoIP Tech Chat).
My first Apple product was a 40Gb back in 2005. In 2010 I replaced it with a 32Gb iPod Touch. Bought a 16Gb iPad 2 last summer.
After 28 years of Mac bashing (more out of fun torturing my Mac friends, really), a couple of weeks ago I decided to expand my knowledge of computing platforms, and since the Mac can run Windows and Linux, I figured I wouldn't be "losing" anything anyway. I first used a Mac (Macintosh II) in 1989, then last in 1995 (Mac SE or something...)
So anyway, last week I ordered a 27" iMac fully loaded (by that I mean that when you order from the Apple store, you set all the options such as processor, RAM, video... to the max selection). I also ordered a Thunderbolt display (I just can't work with only one monitor).
I'm currently still waiting for this stuff to be delivered, but I've already started lurking on this forum to see what you guys are saying so I can learn a bit while waiting for that beast to be delivered.
The display was shipped on Thursday but on Friday I got an e-mail from Apple telling me UPS had lost it in transit (how you lose something this big, I don't know). They're sending another one. Last time I checked the iMac was still being prepared. Hoping to get it for this coming long weekend.
Looking forward to asking you "newbie" questions.
(I've owned computers since 1984, so it feels weird saying that).
