Well I traded a PC for my first iMac and well...... I love it.
1. I'm running into a little problem though; I can't seem to change the home folder name to my name. Although I know it doesn't affect any of the operation of the system or my settings, it psychologically upsets me.
2. Also, is there a way to assign my Apple ID to the computer or does that not matter either?
3. I also see a little lag when trying to connect to the web, but once I do get on it seems pretty beefy, any suggestable reasons?
4. And the final question, did I make the right decision? I traded a Sony Vaio S series tablet (laptop/PC) with an Intel core i5 @ 2.30ghz for an iMac with an Intel Duo Core processor @ 3.06ghz. I've heard the numbers don't really matter but some clarification would help.
Ok, so you purchased ML, so there is no problem there...... have you followed the instructions in baltwo's link? FWIW, the home folder user name is the name the computer was set up with originally. I've read of one possibility if you want to try this (have not tried this myself, so not sure if that'll work): create another user account with your name and full admin privileges, login password, etc; after you've logged in as that new user and you're satisfied that everything is working as expected using that account, you could simply delete the old admin account.
