A few questions for the Apple-aware:
1: How easy is it going to be to get this to talk to my home network via (a) 100BaseT and (b) Wifi - the network is 802.11b? The network is the basic setup XP does, with the PCs connected to a Linksys broadband router / WiFi point.
2: How much compatibility can I expect with things like USB mice? I'm not a fan of touchpads and I usually carry an external mouse.
3: What should I do about anti-virus etc.? Apart from sneering at Windows XP, which I think comes as part of the package...
4: What's a good (and preferably free) text / HTML editor for the Mac? The one I use for my PCs is NoteTab pro, which does some nice things such as allowing multiple open documents - I've had 30-40 open simultaneously a few times.
5: Anyone used one of these with (a) a Belkin USB memory thingy and (b) a Fujitsu digital camera? Don't expect there to be problems, but you never know.
At the moment I expect to continue to use a Windows XP machine as my main PC; I simply have too much committed to it in software etc., so any tips on running a hybrid network like this would be useful.
