    At least, there is no scroll button to become dirty and stop working. Apple's last few attempts at mouse design haven't been so successful. I still have my Pro mouse just because it looks nice with the red laser around the edges but I wouldn't dare use the thing because it lacks a second button.

    i just drooled over the new Macs... but the PC... the PC... been using them all these while and am so reluctant to switch over. why can't the PC look that good

    even Sony which is good for their design still can't touch the Mac when it comes to simplicity in design.

    Not true that Mac is easy. Windows 7 is easier as the keyboard only has 3 buttons

    Command-Option-Escape works just as well and doesn't bring up Activity Monitor, similar to what happens on Windows. I can't remember the last time I needed to force an unruly application on Windows but the Yahoo! Messenger 3.0 beta on Mac OS X (4 years and counting) is always a problem.

    But iMac is glossy screen, will it be uncomfortable?
    I wonder whether there will be anti glare films available for Imac.

    No glare, but there might be condensation issues. Mine is 4 months old and it's having condensation issues. Condensation occurs inside the glass for my unit. Which should not be happening. Apple is looking for a solution for my Imac Hope it is solved.

    I'm surprised about the glossy displays. I just received my MacBook--the kind that was current on Monday--and the glossy display is fine so far. When I used similar Windows machines with the 14.1 inch display, I saw strong reflections and severely darkened colours.

    If the cheapest display in the MacBook is any indication, iMac displays wouldn't be a problem for someone else concerned.
