My first 24 Hours with Core i7 SSD iMac 2010

The new 27-inch iMac 2010 with Core i7 CPU and SSD option I ordered on launch day arrived yesterday. Yesterday marked the end of 20 years working on Microsoft PCs for me. I was on the Microsoft path starting with MS-DOS. Maybe it is an age thing or the iPhone that lured me into switching to Apple.
Either way I am still smiling after my first 24 hours on the new iMac despite still hitting CNTRL+C instead of Command+C.
The SSD and Core i7 CPU provide the luxury of having more performance than I need and zero noise. I am also admiring the fact that only one cable is connected to this block of aluminum. I have connected the iMac via Wifi 802.11n to a Time Capsule I bought with the iMac. Yes, I have my iMac backed up automatically from the get go. Easiest backup system I have ever set up.

The minimalist keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are all wireless. Gesture input on the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are pretty natural. I am switching between the mouse and the trackpad back and forth.
For now I don't know which one I will use more often. Time will tell.

I am still in the process of finding all the applications I used on my Windows XP PC. This process is working pretty well but takes time. Worth mentioning is 1Password. This app is pretty cool for managing and storing all my logins and passwords.

Switching to a new computer is always time consuming. Switching operating systems additionally requires a learning curve. 24 hours into my iMac life I still think that it is totally worth it. The package Apple delivers is expensive but really cool and fun to use.
To be continued...
The new iMac is available on the Apple Store.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
