Hello -I just received my Macbook Pro today and must say its an awesome machine. Its like going from a Volkswagen to a Mercedes Apple did an awesome job with this thing.

I have a few questions, coming from windows I am not too familiar with the OSX interface/functions.

Can someone tell me how to maximize an application to full screen? Is this even possible or do you have to drag it? The maximize button doesn't expand the full screen width.

Does anyone know if its easy to put windows in (just for fun) And is boot camp hard to setup?

Thanks!

Quickly, no it is not possible. The green button per window is Zoom, not Maximize. It increases the size of the window to the maximum size needed to display the window's full content. Now if that happens to exceed the size of the display, it would seem to behave like Maximize, but if it doesn't exceed the size of the screen, it just takes up as much room as is needed. Frankly, I think this is much smarter than chewing up the whole screen with no value add!
