    Beginner question
    Recently purchased a Macbook Pro, and loaded Windows XP. I have been on vacation and haven't used the machine in quite some time. When I turn on the computer, it boots into Windows, and I can't for the life of me remember the shortcut on how to get back into Mac OS X. Any help is appreciated.

    You can boot back to OS X by clicking on the Boot Camp entry in Control Panel and select boot back to OS X. Another way is to reboot the machine and hold down the Option key, then select "Macintosh HD".
