>Configuring a new iMac 20-inch [updated]

19 Jun

>For a customer I bought an iMac 20-inch (2.16 GHz C2D, 2GB), which I’m now configuring. On top of Mac OS X 10.4.9, iLife and iWork ’06 I’m customizing the machine as follows, to suit his needs:

Some challenges I’m still facing:

  • Which version of Office 2007 should I choose? I expect only Word or Excel is occasionally needed.
  • How do I convert all current faxes from WinFax Pro 9 to the Mac?
  • How can I use VNC through the DSL modem and firewall? — Update: this is fairly easy with an SSH tunnel.
  • (How well) does VueScan integrate with PageSender? Or how well can I make them integrate using Automator?

    >One of the first things I do on a new Mac is download Unsanity’s Clear Dock. Takes that annoying white background off the dock. Then I move the dock to the right and make it small enough to see.I also grab Pict2Icon. I like Drive In, by the same people that do Flip4Mac.

    >Antonio: ClearDock sure is a nice visual enhancement, but Pict2Icon seems hardly relevant for a regular user.Drive In sure looks handy, although neither me nor my client watches DVDs…Thanks for the hints!
