So I have a Motorola droid and I am a huge fan of Android. My question is, What is your take on your Apad's. Do you think I will be happy with the over all experience, what performance differences does the Custom rom have and how long does the battery typically last. Also, correct me if I am wrong but it sounds like root access is there out of the box and if using ADB shell SU app isnt even needed? So is installing the custom rom a matter of pushing it like an update?

Have a go at the search function. Pretty much all of your questions have been answered a lot of times already. :)You do not have root out-of-the-box, you need to flash one of the custom ROMs for that. You use the updating software for Windows to change the firmware.

If you decide to go the aPad route, which I must say I LOVE my aPad, I'll send you a package to make that whole process easier.All in all, the only gripe I have is the lack of graphics acceleration. It's a pain to try to play Miner and it stutter. As we develop out better firmware, too, it'll be even better. But as it is, I'm tickled happy with it.

Is there a way to flash it using a Mac? I have Windows installed through Fusion but if there is a native Mac option I would prefer it.

Not until you upgrade to my 1.3 first, after which you have a recovery you can actually use. Or grab the recovery.img and get that flashed individually somehow. rogerbraun is probably going to include the new recovery in his next ROM as well. For now Windows only.
