Well, not new to Macs anyway, just the Ipad. I've been using an Imac running osx 10.6.8 ffor about a year or so. Couldn't be happier. Planning on picking one up today and I've decided on the Ipad 2 middle of the road memory, wi-fi model. Seems 32G should be ample for my needs. I was glad to find this forum as it seems to be chock full of good info and interesting personalities. Looking forward to being part of the community.
