After reading here how much everyone has liked there macs, I have also made the switch. Last week I bought a Mini and just love it. I saw how everyone was saying how easy it was to set up and use and I was skeptical. The skepticism disappeared real quick. When I connected my router and printer it did everything for me. I was up in running in fifteen minutes and most of that was spent shutting down the pc that was being replaced. I downloaded and installed a mini golf game and installation was a breeze. Hooking up my camera was so much simpler, I still can't get over how easy it was. My son liked my Mac so much he went out and bought an IMac. He is into creating his own music and uses a software called ProTools. According to him everything is running much smoother on the Mac than on his PC. So it is safe to say that we are both happy with our Macs. One question, I want to record some family video tapes to the hard drive, can someone tell me what I will need to do this? My goal is to have them on the hard drive and when I get an AppleTV to use that to view them on the TV. Thanks to all of your posts that have been most informative!
