I want to make the switch but will it be hard to learn how to use the new OS compared to the windows Ive known for the past 15 yrs? Will it be hard to have everything work on it that I have working on my PC now? Will it be a long while before Im comfortable using it properly?

Thanks in advance.
I love Mac, switched about 2 years ago. Will take you a few days before you are totally comfortable. Just don't be afraid to experiment, drag things etc.

Hey HyperM3 - are you enjoying the Denon 3808?

Saw you over on AVSForums, correct? If yes, I have some 3808 questions.

You can get any size screen for your Windows PC. I'm currently running dual 19" screens, but you can buy a 30" Samsung at Dell for $1300.

With the iMac, you're really stuck with a single size monitor from the get-go. I added my second monitor after a year.
