Well... got my feet wet last night! stayed up all night foolin around with my new macbook.....felt like my very first date in the backseat of My camaro, FUN, but.....akward! Makin all the switcher mistakes, except for renaming my home file...Thanks to MF I could get tips on how to make the open window bigger,(drag corner) etc, still have yet to learn all the shortcuts.

Still havent forgotten my old girl though....opened up the case on my gateway and found the squeeling wasnt a dying hard drive but a power supply fan full of gunk runs quiet now.... why should I care?, you ask... means I will have more time with my new mac!!! My kids love garage band and photo booth, osx is worth the price just for that IMO. Many Thanks to all of You who helped me decide!!!

One more thing: those of you interested in a macbook for less they are discounting the previous c2d 2.0 ghz models they have left by $100.

Hey Sockeye, how did you know what all the usual switcher mistakes were? My Macbook has been shipped and on it's way to me, is there a Dummies Guide to Macs?

Yes there is a Dummies for Macs but another great guide is Mac OSX The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition it's full of great info. You can get it on eBay or Amazon. Enjoy!
