Hello every one. I just bought my first Mac. i7 mac pro 17inch. I am so unfamiliar with how everything works. I was transferring files and found that I filled up the 500gig hardrive (I got about 162 gigs of music). So I have a couple of questions.
1. How do you veiw how big a folder is?
2. Is there a way to view what is taking up hard drive space?
3. If I want to play video games, is boot camp better then Parrallel?
The computer is great, thin, quiet, light, brillant screen. I have an airport router that I take with me when I travel and they work perfectly together not to mention the iphone 3GS 32 rocks. To think that all of this started because I bought my sister an ipod. Thanks guys for any info.
