Well I got almost 10 years out of my dell as my main computer. Thought I would try one of these beauties out. Thought this could be a good thread to share stuff, and help or get help from others on Apple goodies
Can you tell me why Scorch's pics of his Yamaha kit did not show up on his post, on my mac. Everyone else could see them. When I went to submit a reply on the post, I could see his image lines for the pics, but could not see them when done replying.Nice Sticks! I switched to Mac a few years ago. I didn't squeeze 10 years out of my Dell, but close to it.
First thing, click on the Apple logo in the upper left, then click software update insuring everything is current. I'm not sure what browser your using. Safari is nice, but I like using Firefox. Maybe give Firefox a try and see if the pics start showing up.Can you tell me why Scorch's pics of his Yamaha kit did not show up on his post, on my mac. Everyone else could see them.

I got the perspective wrong. You got yourself a beast of a machine there. Judging that my iMac is five this year and still runs very sweetly, you'll definitely get a few good years from your one. The oldest machine I have is from 1981 but the PSU failed. That's an old BBC Research machine.Thanks MFB. Figured I would go out if it has to last me another 10 years.

I just wish that record companies would use DVD or better for releasing albums. CDs have been outdated for at least a decade now in terms of audio quality.I think Blue Ray might be dead like HD, before they have to worry about it. I think they are banking on it.
I have a 110" screen and a HD projector, and it makes a big difference in quality from DVD to Blue Ray. I was dumb enough to buy the xbox HD player hoping HD would win. Luckily I only bought 2 HD movies before Blue Ray won. Blue Ray is also great for video games.I just wish that record companies would use DVD or better for releasing albums.

The last time I saw a BluRay it made a marginal difference on a 40 inch screen. Paying twice as much for that doesn't appeal. It would be useful as an optical storage medium though.
Quit replying, I am trying to catch up to you. Just kidding. Yes for most people I talk to, including my wife, Blue Ray is not worth the jump. I am pretty anal, so any little improvement in quality is worth it for me. Time for me to get my Blue Ray copy of Gladiator. That is my all time favourite.It would make a difference there. The issue for many is the entry to the market being so high. DVD was a much more significant shift, BluRay is incremental. When I can afford a big enough screen, a high quality player and Blade Runner:The Final Cut on BluRay something new will have come to market.
