Old dog learning new tricks!
I was dreaming about a Mac for years and got my MacBook pro a few days ago. I love it
Could anyone recommend a good book to help with the transition. Main interest is in OSX basics, IWork, .Mac and web design. I would also like to migrate all my data from MS Outlook and use Mac to synchronize with Palm PDA.
Background: Commodore C64, ATARI ST, DOS, 20+ years of PC. Thanks for good tips.

I have both the Missing manual Switching guide and the OSX guide.. Recommend both of them highly.
