Just bought my first Mac ever (black Macbook--specs in sig) last nite--also got the APP, a .MAC account, and a [red] edition 8gb iPod nano.

So far, I've got the basics down with Safari, iTunes and stuff, but I have a few noob questions--lol

1. How do I make tabbed browsing work on Safari?
2. I have a 30 gb black iPod that survived my crappy Gateway PC crash with some of my old iTunes library on it--how do I upload everything off it onto my new Macbook?
3. I like to use Windows Media Player to watch videos and stuff--what's the BEST Mac equivalent? If it can recognixe DiVX, that would be great too.

1. Go to the Menu Bar while in Safari, Click Safari > Preferences > Tabs > Enable Tabbed Browsing.
2. Senuti. http://www.fadingred.org/senuti/
3. Umm... I'm pretty sure there's a popular one, but I can't think of it off of the top of my head. I'll let someone else take care of this one.

Congrats on the Mac!

Sitting, waiting, wishing...

Perian allows you to watch a number of other formats in quicktime - so thats a must have. --- http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/30931

however I find that perian still does not play all formats, so VLC Players can do the job for the other formats. Vlc Player can play any video format.

Infamous_P, do tell me, how is the black MacBook working out for you? Is it as reliable and portable as its advertised to be? I myself will be getting one within the month. Do you feel any lack of power?

~Senuti question~

Having a problem transferring my music from the 30 gb iPod (it was used with a PC, but I can re-format it to work with the Mac?) to the Macbook--it allowed me to transfer the license with all the purchased iTunes songs already.

BUT when the songs begin to copy/paste into iTunes, it crashes partly throughout the process. How do I remedy this problem? Its only about 14 gbs of music or so but it would save alot of time form having to re-rip all my CDs, lol

HELP!

its working out fine, I've got the following programs/games running with no lag:

--Starcraft/Starcraft: Brood War
--Halo
--Grand Theft Auto 3
--Half Life 2
--Counter Strike
--CorelDRAW

the OS loads up when I turn it on in less than a minute and despite complaints by some, my drive isn't loud when running a CD/DVD

I've only had it for 2 days, but I can keep you posted thru PMs about it--all in all, I def would recommend a Macbook to ANYBODY in the market for a laptop or new home computer

I shouldn't be asking this because I thought I quit gaming (CS and CSS) a year or so ago, but ... do you use CS via BootCamp? I'd imagine running Parallels and playing CS might be a little laggy.

Half-Life 2?, didn't know my laptop could handle that. Let me know about how you're running it.
