Ordered placed today. Delivery scheduled in about 10 days. Will follow up once I'm up and running (on Yosemite! I'm pretty excited about that too since I've been stuck in Snow Leopard.) I'm going to do a cautious and compulsively clean install of everything. Now to go check software compatibility because I think I'll be needing to upgrade my font management app, figure out what to do with 15 years of bookmarks (!) and archived mail folders... also going to take the time and re-do every frequently used password and get this new continuity doodad in my life.
Copy your Mail preferences too. Bookmarks can be copied over too.
Years ago when I realized Snow Leopard's Mail didn't play well with iCloud, I used some convoluted work-around preference settings that actually worked and synched ... so I know right away I'm letting that stuff die quickly on my new iMac. I'll start everything from scratch, including Network/Modem/Printer/Mail .... I'm going to spend the time and get everything right and ditch all the legacy preferences.
My iPhoto library is one thing that worries me. I'll have backups and I will keep the current drive, it's the organizational thing that I know is going to be trouble leaping 3 OS generations forward.
I'm going to reset my modem, my printer, my AppleTV and start with a clean slate. New & better passwords for all my online accounts too .... including my iPhone and iCloud and Dropbox .... and somehow figure a way to easily catalog all these changes.
Yes, I do feel like I've committed myself to witness protection program. I want to do it all now, do it right, and then not worry about this for at least another 5 years.
Oh, and if you don't hear from me for a month or two you'll know I really screwed up.
This all went really well! Not a single problem with fresh installs and getting everything running perfectly. All I need is the right ethernet adapter for my printer to modem/router and it will be wireless too. CS apps open almost instantly. Boot up to desktop takes only seconds.
This display is just perfect. My only complaint is that I feel they made the apple logo too big on the back.
