    Just got a MacBook, need help.
    I just purchased a new macbook and so far i love it, but i have had and used PC's. So i am a little frustrated in the switch just because im trying to ajust and it is hard to adapt. The book that came with the macbook really wasnt all that descriptive, is there any tips or anything that might help me?? thanks

    Specs:
    MacBook white 160GB. iPod nano... old school one.
    I would just say spend time on your computer messing around and discovering all that there is to discover. If you don't understand something... look it up on Wikipedia, they do a great job of describing Mac OS X and all that's on it.

    The more time I'm on my MacBook the more I love it.

    P.S. The Help feature helps... a lot.

    Could just drag them to the Trash or control-click- "move to trash".
    Also, select the item and use "Apple" key and "Delete" together.
