    Sounds a bit concerning, I don't have any experience of the 21", I have the 27" and I would describe mine as warm and mine has been on 24x7 for several months.

    As for the earlier advice, its all good.

    Stick with the Mac and if you find yourself needing to do something you used to on windows, seek out a mac alternative first rather than running back to a windows machine, or using virtualisation, you will soon see there little to worry about.

    I did the same a few years ago, I didn't want to install virtualisation so I had my old windows laptop powered up on a chair next to my desk and made a deal with myself I would seek out mac alternatives for everything first.

    So when I needed to ftp some files, it would have been easy to turn to the laptop and fire up flashfxp, but instead I searched the net for a mac ftp client. There are a few good packages, but I ended up keeping and still use the first one I found (cyberduck).
    I realise sometimes someone might be time constrained and not have the luxury to always follow that line, but during my initial Mac transition period, I never fell back to use the laptop for anything and after 10 days, powered down the laptop :-)

    The hardest thing I found making the transition from PC to Mac was always looking for a particular task to be much more complicated than it actually was, that's the legacy PC/Windows bad habits you unknowingly got used to :-)

    Like installing and removing applications on a PC , having to go to control panel just to run the app/setup program which then calls the original installer etc all seems so OTT now!

    One of my mac features is Spaces. I have several spaces enabled on my machine and assign the main apps I use the most their own space to work in.

    E.G.
    Space 1 = Firefox and/or Safari
    Space 2 = Mail
    Space 3 = Word or Pages
    Space 4 = Excel or Numbers
    Space 5 = iWeb
    Space 6 = iPhoto
    Space 7 = iTunes
    Space 8 = General multiple Finder or Terminal working space

    Its like having 8 monitors hanging off the back of your computer. When ever you want to switch from surfing the net to composing an email, your actions are no different, you just click the mail app on the dock and OSX replaces your screen with Space 2 where I have a full screen Mail running. Its awesome because you can have apps maximised without the clutter of multiple windows trying to cram on one screen or having to keep minimising & maximising apps!

    With the large screens on the iMacs and using Spaces, the screen real estate you can dedicate to each application really is pure luxury :-)
    I usually size the window of my main apps centrally, leaving a channel down the left and right side just big enough to get access to icons on the desktop on the right and I have a messenger & twitter clients in narrow windows down the left hand side. You can assign something like a messenger client or any app that you want access to from more than one space to be visible on all spaces.

    Often overlooked or not used, I think its one of the best o/s features ever invented :-)

    Good suggestion for a noob like me.


    Thanks man.

    To uninstall an app you can just drag it to the trash, although some files can be left in your computer, I use an app called appcleaner which removes all of the files, I think it's a free app.
    As for the movies I just put them in my movies folder.
