Question
Hi Jeff how are you?  Do you know if there is an easy way to transfer files from a Dell PC to an iMac?  I am switching over to a Mac but have a ton of files on my Dell PC that i want to be able to view/use in Mac.  Would appreciate your help - thanks

Russ,

There's an apple document just for this!

The best choice from that list is Windows Migration Assistant

If possible, that's the choice you want.

Expertise

I can comfortably answer most basic/advanced questions regarding Macintosh hardware and software - nowadays only OSX. In fact, if it's prior to 10.3, there's a good chance I'll reject your question. Forget OS9 stuff - Igave up OS 9 ten years ago). Please do not ask me about OS9. My particular specialties are in Video editing/DVD authoring. I am a certified trainer in the "pro apps" (Final Cut, DVDSP, Soundtrack, Motion). I have been using Macs since 1985.

Experience

I'm an Apple Cert. Trainer for FCP, DVD SP, since the inception of this program. I've was
certified as an Apple Cert. Technician back in 1989.
