    Hey,

    I'm thinking of purchasing a iMac 21.5 Inch. Will it connect to my basic wireless router? Came from my ISP.

    And besides that, is it hard to make an app? I was thinking about making an app, and purchasing a developer kit and such.

    Of course it will connect to your router. If you have to ask how hard it is to write and app for the iphone it will probably be really hard for you.

    If your asking if a iMac can connect to the internet then yes.

    If you know C++ or something like that. It should be a breeze.

    Well I'm tech savvy.

    More questions, if you don't mind.

    Is there good software for it for like school papers, projects, e.t.c? - I heard there were, and I heard its unlike what a PC has to offer.

    Is it easy to organize documents and such? - I've watched videos, still un-sure.

    Would you recommend the 21.5 Inch? I'm looking at the 1TB HDD model.

    You can get Microsoft Office for Mac, Or just get iWork.

    Yes. Its all very similar. Finder and My computer are like the same thing tbh.

    I dunno. I have a macbook.

    Just go to one of your local Apple stores, or any electronic store that has Macs and try them out there. If you find the 21.5" too small for you, then get a bigger one.

    I should be going to Future Shop to take a look at the 21.5 inch. I'd end up buying it from Apple though, I think.

    Anyway,

    What's your take on developing an app?
    Is there any profit in it? I was thinking about doing it... And that's one of the main reasons for buying a Mac but I'm not 100% sure. I can learn anything technology wise super fast and easy, it's just been a natural given ability to me.

    Is it good for media, like music and photo's? I like my photo's too look good, and be organized. Same with my music, I love music.

    Do they last long?
    PC's don't last too long, well they do, but they don't run too well.

    Thanks,
    Brendan
