Default FAO Adynalyne (& other mac users)

Well I went ahead and did it - ordered my Macbook with educational discount, saved about 50

So just wanted to ask for some useful websites with tips and stuff for beginner Mac users!

Got it - and I love it

Taken me a while to get used to Mac from Windows, but god is it easy to use! No crashing, faster loading time - copying 4500 mp3s took about 10 minutes whereas this would take about an hour on Windows!!!

Nice, so is the C2D pretty snappy in OS X?

I've yet to touch an Intel mac.

Well, I just copied over my music, was on MSN, running Word and installing Cubase all at once and it didn't take time to switch between windows at all.

Brilliant - makes Windows look so awful!
