Default New Imac G5 and video ipod

gave the imac I use to house my personal pics and music to the kids and replaced it with a new G5 and a new video ipod. The is a very, very nice machine for 1300 bucks. Quality is first rate and is so much better thought out than my std PC Thinkpad I use for work. Things that blew me away:
1. migrating all my stuff from my old G3 to the G5 was simple. Connect a firewire between them and turn on the machines while holding down the T key - that's it. 45 minutes later my entire contents of the old are in the new and EVERYTHING , including all internet connections works perfectly.
2. The video Ipod is very slick - the idea is not to watch a little screen but to use a cord out of the ipod that hooks to composite video to play anything on your TV or video system. Just downloaded a music video of alan jackson and jimmy buffet "it's 5 oclock somewhere". Anxious to hook it up to the video in of my 3010C on thru my sound system on the boat.
3. The abilty to shoot Digital Video with a camcorder, hook it to the back of the G5 and hit ONE button to burn the contents onto a DVD that'll play in any dvd player is very slick
4. and a remote control 1 inch by 4 inches allows you to play any movie, song or photo from across the room. The remote is even magnetized to grip to the side of the monitor....

I'm impressed...

Oooh, that T is sooo cool! I cloned my G4/867 to my G5/iMac in about a half hour. Now, if Garmin would only make a Mac interface....

is there any toy that you don't have? next time you have a house cleaning, do give me a call, I'm jealous to say the least.
