    No facetious comments please.

    OK so the kids in my class are using imacs to edit some animation sequences. But some of the stop-go animations they have made are saved on a "proper" laptop. Is there anyway of getting them off the lappie and on to the mac so they can edit them please?

    They should be easily convertible - one of the things about mac is it takes virtually every format - what file type are they saving in?

    No idea.

    So I can't just whack it all on a CD and stick that in the mac slot then?

    CD/usb stick etc yeah for sure but it would help if the format the files are saved in was an editable format on the mac

    Worth a shot straight off though as you say!

    into the USB slot? I mean you could try the dvd slot but it wouldn't help much

    (usb slots on the back of the monitor)

    They're on the back of the iMac, and there is also two slots on either side of the keyboard if you have a wired one. If you have a wireless keyboard you're stuck with the ones on the back of the iMac, at the opposite end to the power button!

    Sometimes using the ones on the side of the wired keyboard isn't as efficient as using the ones on the back. Go ahead! Turn it around and have a good look. It's not that scary.

    Pop a stick in the slot and you are ready to go.

    Honest Dawn. We'd not be pestering you to give it a good go if we weren't thoroughly convinced these machines were the best.

    Macs are just so much more everything, but the cool factor is pretty important too!
