    I purchased a 12" G4 iBook and I should have it next week. Woohoo!

    So, questions I have about software. Is iLife included and is there some sort CD burning software like Toast included?

    Thanks

    K. I need something that can burn data as well. I am guessing I am going to have to actually go and buy Toast then.

    you'll have to buy toast separate or find another program to download (zdnet.com/downloads) I don't have a burner on my mac but if I believe with a blank cd in the drive, you can drop files into it and it burns them...

    you can burn data cd's from OSX itself. just pop in a blank cdr and drag and drop the files you want to copy to cd to the cd icon on the desktop. open up finder, then click on the burn icon that will be next to the cdr. is how i burn cd's and i dont use any software like Toast.

    I use Popcorn for DVDs, iTunes for CDs and OS X for docs.

    Another question.

    I am coming from using Outlook as my email client. Is there any way that Mac OS X Mail can import my email?

    I'm almost positive Apple Mail can import a PST file. If the newest version supports Exchange it can probably do anything with MS.
