    Cool switching from PC to Mac
    I am in the market for a new laptop. Seriously considering a Mac. Any and all tips/suggestions/advise welcome. Also, should I install Windows OS on Mac? What are the pros and cons??

    I would try to use all that Apple has to offer unless you need some windows specific program and usually they come with pretty much everything but an office program which
    if you buy at the time of purchase iWork can be had cheaper.

    There are a lot of tutorials on the internet but here is Apple's official tutorials: Apple - Find Out How - Mac Basics

    I agree with osxx about Windows. Unless you really need it there is no need to install Windows. Nowadays there are less Windows only software or you can at least find an equivalent on the Mac side.

    You will always be able to install Windows later so there is no need to rush and get it right away. Installing Windows will eat up hard drive space so you should make sure to get a large enough hard drive to have both Mac and Windows. Having a large hard drive is beneficial so it's not a waste even if you don't install Windows later.

    I kindly direct you here. Read the stickies. They are there for a reason.

    As for the Windows question, I believe EndlessMac pretty much summed it up. Install only if you need it. Otherwise why waste space on something you aren't going to be using.
