Hey everyone,

I just bought a new MacBook yesterday. I've been using Windows since 1995. I was hunting for a new laptop as my wife took over my Toshiba for her graphics design classes. With the introduction of Vista, I was not impressed at all with the way the OS hogs memory. So, I did some research and bought my first apple product.

I'm very pleased with everything about Mac OS X. I've used linux distros before, so am somewhat familiar with UNIX systems. I had a few small details that I had to search for answers on and I'm happy to say I was able to find the answers on this forum.

Excellent forum and I hope all my problems are as easy as doing a quick search. Thanks for the wonderful information that made the transition easier!
