iMac First Impressions

It’s been a few days and I’ve had a little time to play. Overall I’m very happy with my new iMac. It’s so sweet.

New features that I acquired:
iSight Web Cam
Mighty Mouse
DVD Burner
Front Row (with remote)
All iLife 06 Applications
and so much power!

I’ve only just began to play with my new iMac but I have found two annoyances; both software based. One, Front Row doesn’t work with my iPod. Two, iSight looks better in third party applications than Apple applications. Maybe that’s just a fluke.

Overall I’m very happy and there is so much more to discover and enjoy. 😀

    How slow is photoshop cs2 on there? I am looking at getting a macbook pro but am worried that Photoshop and Dreamweaver will be super slow cause they are not universal apps yet.

    I don’t have Photoshop installed. I do have Fireworks and Dreamweaver and they work just fine. I had a few odd issues but I found out that it’s Macromedia in general as my oddities happen on PowerPC machines too. Non-universal apps should not be any slower. It’s just that Universal apps are faster because they are optimized to take full effect of the processor. You really shouldn’t notice a difference.
