    I have finally treated myself to an iMac which should arrive later in the week.

    The iPad is my first Apple device, so I am looking forward to making the switch, but I am unsure on what if anything I need to back up from iTunes. I only use iTunes for syncing my iPad... I haven't bought any music, just apps for iPad.

    If I make my final sync between my old PC & iPad, will iTunes on my iMac realise it's the first sync and just copy everything from iPad to iMac or will it delete everything from the iPad?

    Any help greatly appreciated :)

    Everything you need to know should be here http://www.apple.com/support/switch101/

    Enjoy your new mac, I switched many years ago and I've not looked back. Any problems let us know.

    Well I have just up my iMac and love it so far, except for one thing.....

    I am trying to set up my Livemail aka Hotmail, but I can't seem to get it to work as IMAP. I have searched and searched and all I can find is pop settings.

    I have used that for now, and ticked the box to leave messages on server, but I don't think this will keep everything in sync. IMAP is working fine on my iPad through Exchange and on my Blackberry, so I am confused as to why I can't get it to work in Mail?

    Am I missing something?

    Please feel free to move this to a better area if you feel it should be..

    Thank you :)
