I don't know if your model supports it, but have you tried to scroll by sliding 2 fingers up and down the trackpad? That's handy too.
    Yeah, I did manage to turn it on and get it working. Scrolling with two fingers is cool also. I'm used to scrolling with one finger on my HP but this is much easier.

    You can either hold command (apple) while you click

    Don't you mean Control-click?

    Yes, I did. I guess I'm so used to doing it the really easy way (2 finger tap or right clicking on a mouse) that I didn't pay too much attention. :-P

    Some pictures if anyone's interested. My first Mac and I love how quiet it is. Thanks all for the input, I'm gonna go ahead and pick up a copy of iWork '09 for college and Parallels to run the Zune software so I don't have to give up my Zune.

    I see you're using Firefox (it's opened and safari isn't on your dock). I mean, i guess it comes down to personal preference, but Safari 4 is WAY fast compared to firefox. Try it out. On my aluminum MacBook (13 inch pro beta pretty much) 2GHz, Safari 4 opens in less than one dock bounce. Firefox takes between 4 and 5. That's some bs.

    I did hear Safari was good. It does open in one bounce. I've just been using FireFox for too long and finally have toolbar and bookmarks just the way I like it, haha. BTW, I almost got that MacBook (or an aluminum model similar to it). It was $999 at Best Buy but an open box model (had box, but was returned) so I passed.

    Good thing you passed on that, I had a really bad experience with bestbuy not to long ago with this. In then end I got a brand new Aluminum MacBook for 100 dollars cheaper then what it originally was, then 2 days later the new line of MBP were released. But I said oh well I love my mac, I havent gotten to use it much yet, mostly my PC work is keeping my busy, but I did do some work in iPhoto which was pretty easy to get the hang of. Faces is awsome too.

    I have the older white MB model, so I don't know if it differs for yours. But with mine I can
    A) hold ctrl while clicking
    B) simply hold on the trackpad button for like 2-3seconds until a right-click is initiated
    or, my personal favourite, C) keep two fingers on the trackpad while clicking the trackpad button

    I've only used iPhoto once (yesterday) but it was a generally positive experience. I popped my SD card from my digital camera into a media card reader and iPhoto immediately popped up and I was able to upload pics to Flickr and Facebook and do other stuff.
