Your Mac's Specs
2011 17" MBP 2.2ghz, 16gig ram, OS 10.11.6
And it is so diffferent than a samsung or andriod .

Of course it is…it's the Mac OS.:) It's usually a great idea to become more familiar with the Mac OS…before plopping down some big bucks for an Apple computer.:)

I couldn't figure out how to copy and paste for ever well even just right click. Crazy,

The "Copy & Paste" commands are pretty much available from any applications drop down "Edit" menu. And the keyboard shortcut command for each is (2-key shortcut):

- "Copy" = command + c
- "Paste" = command + v

The "command" key is the one that looks like a 4-leaf clover…and on many newer Mac models…is labeled "command".;)

As far as doing a right-click with the MacBook Air trackpad…you tap the trackpad with two fingers…then choose the menu choice you want.

HTH,

p.s. I also assume (since you used to work for Google)…that you know that you could have "Googled" this info very easily.;)
