Hooking up my Macbook Pro to an HDTV

Hello everyone,

I wasn't sure what forum to post this in, so I'm going with the more general one to be safe.

Haha it seems so simple I feel dumb for having asked the question. Guess thats what 20 years of Microsoft does to you, you assume every solution is far more difficult.

Anyway, thanks for the help...

external hard drive

I recently bought a Mac (through the online store, I won't receive it for a few more days). In preparation, I got an external hard drive to transfer everything I need. It's a WD Elements portable...

I am leaning towards buying my MBP in person at an Apple Store mostly because I don't want to have to transfer my hard drive myself.

I assume that the Apple guys will do it for me at the store...

A few logistical questions before making the switch

Hello. I have recently decided to make the switch from my (crappy) Dell laptop to a MacBook Pro. I need no convincing, but there are a few things I am unsure about.

First, I do need a version of...

Right. It looks like my hard drive will be in the neighborhood of 250 gigs. Given that I've survived most of my life with less then 100, I suppose giving 50 gigs or so to Windows wouldn't make much...
