Thats right…I took the plunge. we are no longer a PC household as of..well whenever the things show up.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far and trust me I will blog my transition process.

I ordered all refurbs

Macpro 15 inch 2.4 ghz with 2 gig ram

iMac 24″ 2.8ghz 2 gig ram.

decided to get iwork cus macoffice is getting horrible reviews. Hopefully the transition works there with word and excel files.

I am stoked and ready to get started learning this stuff. I am not a moron (although some think different) so it shouldn’t be too difficult for the transition, but if it is thank God you all are here to make me feel warm and fuzzy.

To Apple I go!

So within the next week or so I am going to switch back to mac after a 12 year hiatus. I do have some questions that I need help with.

1. Any idea how to make my 30,000 ttf fonts work on a mac? Can they be converted?

2. is mac office my only solution for working with word and excel files?

3. What are my email options? and can I import all my important past email from outlook?

4. I love my right click button, being able to have a menu without keyboard. How does this work on the mac.

5. Are there issues with printers?

6. technical question: I use a folder to drag and drop into my server…will I now have to go through ftp only?

7. Adobe is going to swap my CS3 for a mac version…anybody having any issues with CS3 in mac?

8. Anything else I need to be aware of?

I wanted a desktop and laptop but I think that I need a bag of money first. So it looks like Im gonna go with a macbookpro and then maybe jump on the 24″ imac. before Imac I think I’m gonna get a wacom cintiq for my illustration.

Anyway…help me out guys…
