    My Mrs bought me that system for christmas. You can wi-fi things across, bluetooth too. You create a folder with it all in and send the folder across. Other thing you can do is put it all on a pen drive. Don't forget to import all your internet favourites too.

    You will need applications such as pages (apples version of microsoft office word). They aren't without their faults, but I wouldn't go back to PC now.

    When I said that, the thing that sprang to mind was address labels in 'Pages'. There isn't anything in pages to print labels, unlike MS Office Word that has labels as an option. I had to download a template from the Avery site, and then its still a bit of a mess on to print labels. The other thing is, there doesn't seem to be quite as much software available as there is for Windows, but then again I haven't found myself wanting for anything.

    Installing peripherals is a dream though. I plugged in my printer and a box came up saying 'Do you want to install drivers for HP Photosmart.............etc' YES or NO. Clicked on yes and the box disappeared then nothing happened. After half an hour I thought well what do I do now. So I looked in the system preferences at printers, and there my printer was, installed, little green light denoting it was ready and it was even marked as default. Brilliant.

    If you have an iphone4s and I do, iCloud is great. I take a picture whilst out somewhere. When I get home and go on the iMac, its on there. I add a new contact to my phone and it is immediately on the Mac. I bookmark a page on my phone.........you get the idea lol.

    Get one, you won't go back to PC. Oh and it takes about 3 seconds to shut down lol
